Sangiovese

jht-on the contrary, this wine is made up of Brunello (Sangioveso grosso), a clone of Sangiovese that is used to make Chianti. As a matter of fact, much of the vineyard region now used to make Brunellos around Montalcino, now expensive and highly prized, was used to make Chianti years back, and only one house, Biondi-Santi, had pretensions to a fine and expensive and ageworthy wine. The Trebbiano blend referred to makess white in this region.
