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.

L’aura – Chianti Classico DOCG (Sangiovese 100%) This is their premier wine, bottled for the first time in 1998. Jacopo and Filippo Di Battista dedicated this wine to their mother, Laura. The name is written in the apostrophized manner of Petrarch’s “Canzoniere” who called his muse Lady Laura, a perennial subject of unrequited love, in order to hide her identity and not draw the ire of her jealous husband. The illustration on the label is a drawing made by Jacopo’s grandmother in the 1930s of a decorative plate that had an angel holding flowers – which eventually became the company’s logo.
