Episode 17 - Sangiovese! Everything from Chianti to soils, to barrels and tannin, and beyond
Play • 1 hr 41 min

Sangiovese is a very complicated grape, both in Italy and historically in California. It is a balancing act between acid and tannin, but very sensitive to climate and soil. It promises so much, but is famously fickle in delivery. Paul Robinson of Bottivino and I dive into a Sangiovese tasting that explores history, soil types, cellar practices, my vineyard experience with different clones and viticultural goals, and tasting specific bottles. Consider it a crash course from the sommelier perspective and my vineyard and winery point of view on this noble and often confusing grape.
