Episode 36: The Blood of Jove aka Sangiovese
Sangiovese is a wildly diverse grape that is the prominent grape in some of the most expensive wines in the world. Allie brings us a classic example of the wine, while Julie sneaks in a little Sangio surprise. We give you the nuts and bolts of what makes this grape so great. Then Allie gives a bit of Italian history that sounds straight out of the Lord of the Rings whose battles end revolved around a black rooster. We know it sounds wacky, but tune in until the end to get the whole story. Grab a glass of Chianti or your favorite Sangiovese and join us for a new adventure. Cheers!
