The SI Tasting Panel met in person for the first time after Covid to taste Indian Sangiovese wines and it was a most rewarding experience. The eight wines we tasted (thanks to the producers who provided us with the opportunity) included a rosé and a white wine, three single varietals and three blends from Akluj, Nashik and the Nandi Hills. They were very different in style, but impressive in their own way. Sangiovese is the dominant and most prestigious grape in Tuscany grown throughout the region which stretches down the western coast of central Italy. As our tasting of this intriguing grape showed Indian Sangiovese can hold its own with the best. It’s a varietal that is grown successfully around the world and is on par with international red varieties in popularity. — RKS
