‘San Zoveto’ which later became ‘Sangioveto’, was the name commonly used in the past
in Chianti for the Sangiovese varietal.
The Sangioveto di Coltibuono was created to honour a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. It is only produced on better vintages.

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby colour with shades of purple. Very intense nose with bouquet of balsamic, flowery violet, iris, spices, red fruits, vanilla and cloves.
On the palate it reveals its great structure, dry and savoury supported by balanced acidity, warm and persistent with great aging potential. Supple tannins become refinement of taste, soft and velvety by time.
