Sangiovese Grape aka Hianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile (Vitis vinifera) is a red wine grape from Italy was well known as far back as the 16th century. Makes a fresh fruity, strawberry overtone, some what spicy wine when young, but takes on tannins from oak barrels readily during aging. The main ingredient of the famous Chianti wine, it is also used in many Northcoast California red wine blends. The most planted wine grape in Italy, it takes a long dry growing season to mature. The Latin roots of its name literally mean "blood of Jove", and it is likely its history goes back all the way to Roman times. Currently popular with some of our excellent organic winemakers here in our home town of Orleans. Hardy to zone 7.
