Sangiovese - Traube und Blatt

History

The variety was first mentioned under the name "Sangiogheto" by the Italian agronomist Giovanni Soderini (1526-1596) in his work "Trattato della coltivazione delle viti, e del frutto che se ne puô cavare", published posthumously in 1600. Allegedly, the name is of Latin origin (Sanguis Jovis), which means "blood of Jupiter" and is supposed to indicate an ancient origin of the vine. According to an unverifiable hypothesis, an ancestor is said to have been known to the Etruscans. In any case, it is one of the most important Italian leading varieties with numerous descendants.

Descent (Parentage)

The exact descent (parentage) has not been clearly clarified. The Swiss biologist Dr. José Vouillamoz already stated in 2007 that Sangiovese comes from a cross between Ciliegiolo x Calabrese di Montenuovo (i.e. Sangiovese is a descendant)....
