Sangiovese

Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape varietal and can taste quite different throughout, depending on the region it is grown in. It is the key grape variety of Tuscany’s distinguished Chianti and Montalcino regions. Sangiovese is generally higher in acidity with hints of local earth and herbs including roasted tomato, balsamic and oregano making this wine a great match for you guessed it: tomato sauce. It is sure to stand up beautifully with your home-cooked Italian meal.  AKA “Prugnolo Gentile” in the Montepulciano region within Italy.

Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany, within Central Italy, lies on the western side of the country. Tuscany is famous for its rolling hills, the popular region of Chianti and the black grape variety, Sangiovese. Sangiovese wines here usually produce high levels of acidity and tannin with aromas of red cherry, plum, and died herbs. Sangiovese does so well throughout Tuscany as it needs a warm climate to ripen fully. Designated regions to keep an eye out for are Chianti DOCG, Chianti Classico DOCG, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. Additionally, Bolgheri DOC, for bold reds from the coast of Central Italy.

The Estate is located in a privileged position, as it borders between Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi.

This distinct territory is rich with natural progressive changes to the natural terrain, that as a result of dedication and effort, have given light to a complete line that includes genuine and fresh wines for daily consumption, as well as wines for contemplation, with complex structures. We have always considered our main strength to be the harmonious complexity that characterizes our reality in all its aspects: from the conformation of the soil to the family history, where Tuscany and Trentino merge into an exclusive reality.

Our family arrived in Tuscany in 1977, when our grandfather Ermete, from a long generation of vine cultivators in the Trentino region, purchased 70 hectares of land in Tuscany, only 6km from the historic city of Siena: San Giorgio a Lapi. His son Aldo, our father, moved to the land with his wife Fiorenza, our mother, to take care of the vineyard, while staying dedicated to the production and the selling of this wine, and the 2000 olive trees. Our father brought with him to Tuscany a little piece of his home in the Alps, by planting two typical vines (Chardonnay and Teroldego) in the hills of Siena, and with this his specialized local knowledge of white wine production.

6km from Siena, on the border between the Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi, stands our family business San Giorgio a Lapi. We have always considered our main strength to be the harmonious complexity that characterizes our reality in all of its aspects: from our land’s shape to our family history, where Tuscany and Trentino merge into an exclusively modern product. We follow the entire production process, masterfully making use of the sudden and natural changes in the landform territory, merging ancient traditional knowledge with innovative technologies in the agronomic and oenological fields. Thus, the wide range of products our company has come to be: genuine and guaranteed wines for daily consumption, wines of remarkable structure with a strong bouquet, an enveloping passito, in addition to our excellent oil. Each element of San Giorgio a Lapi (wines and people) is characterized by its personality and aspiration, while remaining connected to others through genuine authenticity.
