Sangiovese, not a happy grape?

Who would not be happy to be in Tuscany? Apparently not sangiovese, according to what Asa writes on the travel blog. Sangiovese, she says, is often described by female winemakers as “a stubborn old man” and by male winemakers as ” a hysterical woman”… (Remember that we are in Italy.) But handled correctly and with skills it gives amazing wines.

In the article she also talks about all the different guises that sangiovese can take in Tuscany, the kind plum, the little brown one, and the little dark one. And finally, she talks about the single most important thing of all to remember in order to fully enjoy the wines from Tuscany made from sangiovese.

Read Åsa’s article on the travel blog: The red soul of Tuscan wines: Sangiovese.

Why not check out for yourself the state of happiness of sangiovese? Join us at BKWine on a wine tour to Tuscany with many sangiovese wines tasted and with gourmet Italian food. Tuscany is one of our most popular wine travel destinations. At least it will be sure to increase your own happiness.
