Sangiovese is one of the most widespread vines in Italy, especially in Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Lazio, Abruzzi and Molise. According to the originating region, it is the basis of some of the most renowned Italian wines, such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Morellino di Scansano, Chianti and Torgiano.
Torgiano Rosso Reserve, which was granted the DOCG denomination in 1990, is produced in the Torgiano municipality only. It’s a rich and complex wine, made of at least 70% of Sangiovese and 30% of other red vines grown in the area. Suited to a long ageing, it must age for at least three years in order to become a Reserve.
