Sangiovese

It is a red italian wine whose name derives from the Latin sanguis Jovis, “the blood of Jove“. Though it is the grape of most of central Italy from Romagna down to Lazio, Campania and Sicily, outside Italy it is most famous as the main component of the blend Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Morellino di Scansano, although it can also be used to make varietal wines such as Brunello di Montalcino , Rosso di Montalcino or Sangiovese di Romagna, as well as modern “Supertuscan” wines like Tignanello. Young Sangiovese has fresh fruity flavours of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors when aged in barrels. Sangiovese was already well known by the 16th century. The former is well known as an ancient variety in Tuscany, the latter is an almost-extinct relic from the Calabria, the toe of Italy. At least fourteen Sangiovese clones exist, of which Brunello is one of the best regarded. An attempt to classify the clones into Sangiovese grosso (including Brunello) and Sangiovese piccolo families has gained little evidential support.

Grechetto

It is native grape, white grape, robust and astringent taste, typical of the Umbrian region, particularly in the areas of Orvieto, Spoleto, Todi and finely Torgiano, wherein the variety acquires special quality.
Hardy and adaptable to various types of soil, produces white wines with good structure, with aromas of walnut and able to join other major grape varieties such as Malvasia and Chardonnay in different assemblies.
The grape old, from Greece, but not to be confused with Greco, another important native grape of southern Italy.

Il Santo

Vin Santo or Vino Santo (holy wine) is a style of Italian dessert wine. Traditional in Tuscany, these wines are often made from white grape varieties such as Trebbiano and Malvasia, though Sangiovese may be used to produce a rosé style known as Occhio di Pernice or eye of the partridge. The wines may accurately be described as straw wines since they are most often produced by drying the freshly harvested grapes on straw mats in a warm and well ventilated area of the house.
