In Italy, one of the most common vineyards is Sangiovese, which is used in the Chianti Classico. Its origin derives  from the Etruscan people, in fact the earlier areas where it was implanted were part of Central Italy, mainly Tuscany. Some affirmed that its name comes from the definition of “sangiovannina grapes”, connected with its untimely ripening; others support that it derives from Sanguis Jovis, Jupiter’s blood, which is the name conferred by a Capuchin monk of the monastery of Sant’Arcangelo of Romagna, during a feast in honor of pope Leone XII. Sangiovese perfectly adapts its scents and aromas with the hilly terrains where is implanted.
