Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape that goes into famous wines like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Super Tuscans. Sangiovese wines tend to exhibit the grape's naturally high acidity as well as moderate to high tannin content and light colour. Young Sangiovese wines have fresh fruity flavours of strawberry and a little spiciness, but readily take on oak, even tar like flavours, when aged in barrels. The flavour of pure Sangiovese is elusive and ranges in a spectrum somewhere between mulberries, prunes, spice, tobacco, sometimes leather and chestnuts. It tends to be savoury rather than sweet. Sangiovese's high acidity and moderate alcohol makes it a very food-friendly wine when it comes to food and wine pairings. One of the classic pairings in Italian cuisine is tomato-based pasta and pizza sauces with a Sangiovese-based Chianti.
