Sangiovese a taste of Italy in Pacific Northwest
Sangiovese is the most-planted red grape in Italy and is most famous in Tuscany. Here in the New World, Sangiovese plays no more than a minor role.
In the Northwest, some of the best examples of Sangiovese are dry rosés that provide deliciously bright red fruit behind startling acidity.
Washington has the largest plantings of Sangiovese in the Northwest, with about 1,300 tons harvested each fall.
We have put together a list of eight Northwest Sangiovese – with half of them examples of rosés.
