Marche Sangiovese, “Polesio”

Sangiovese is an amazing grape. It can make wines that are light and fresh as well as wines that are deep, rich and powerful. But whether they are easy-to-drink or contemplative they sing with Italian-style dishes. Polesio is somewhere in the middle, pretty much everyone likes it, but it is not simple. Poderi San Lazzaro makes this great everyday wine at an every day price.
