The “Bloody Good” Urban Sampler: $50 (Regular $67)

 

   

In the spirit of Halloween and all things fall, UG celebrates Sangiovese- the defining grape of Tuscany.  This grape is thickly skinned, and tightly rooted in tradition. From the Latin sanguis Jovis, or “the blood of Jove,” Sangiovese represents 10% of all vineyard plantings in Italy, concentrated mostly in Tuscany but also found in the extreme north and south. When the grape excels, it produces the country’s most regal wines such as Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Chianti Classico, while also representing the humble Chianti, and Morellino di Scansano. Try the many faces of Sangiovese and see what make these wines so bloody good!

  • 2013 Ciacci Piccolomini d’ Aragona (IGT, Tuscany) 

    From famed Brunello producer Ciacci Piccolomini comes this multifaceted wine suited for day drinking due to its easy, fresh nature! This 80% Sangiovese is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a bit of Syrah to add fruit, fullness and structure. This versatile wine partners perfectly with cheese and salami!

  • 2011 Renzo Masi Rufina Chianti (DOC Rufina, Tuscany): 

    Rufina is the most northern region in the Chianti zone.  This wine is made up of Sangiovese with a touch of Canaiolo to soften the wine. Masi Chianti Rufina is made from a combination of fruit grown on the Masi’s own estate along with some purchased from other growers. Try it with roasted leg of lamb, or vegetarian lasagna!

  • 2010 La Maialina Gertrude (IGT Tuscany):  

    The name ‘La Maialina’ (little pig) references the Cinta Senese breed that originated in the Siena area during the 1300’s and is the only Tuscan native pig to survive extinction. This “super Tuscan” wine combines 45% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 30% Cabernet to create a lush blend. Perfect with Tuesday night sausage pizza!

  • 2011 Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano (DOCG, Scansano, Tuscany): 

    This coastal cuvee is mostly Sangiovese, with Alicante and Malvasia Nera. Morellino di Scansano is a young red wine, with hints of maritime influence and lively acidity. Perfect with roasted chicken in red wine sauce!
