Varietal: Sangiovese
By far the most significant variety in central Italy, it is the main grape in 25 of Tunscay’s 42 DOCs and also the backbone to the region’s most highly acclaimed wines. It’s capacity to adapt and evolve according to its suroundings is partly why it has acquired so many clones and synonyms. In Chianti Classico it is often referred to as "Sangioveto", while in the towns of Montalcino and Montepulicano (not related to the variety grown in Abruzzo) it goes by "Brunello" and "Prugnolo Gentile" respectively. Other synonyms include "Morellino" in southern Maremma, and "Nielluccio" in Corsica. With this in mind it is no surprise there is such variety in styles, varying from light young wines like Chianti Classico all the way through to gloriously rich and powerful Brunellos that can benefit from decade or more bottle maturation. Sangioveses that see little to no oak, typically show bright, tart red fruit of cherries and redcurrants while olives, herbs, and meat juices are noted in more savory examples. The grape’s acidity makes it a good accompaniment to food which is also high in acidity. Tomato based dishes and a great variety of Italian cuisine can pair incredibly well.

Country: Bolivia
There are numerous valleys where wine has been traditionally produced in Bolivia for more than 400 years. The most important regions today comprehend 3,000 hectares and are divided into: – Central Valley of Tarija with 2,400 hectares of vineyards between 1,600 to 2,150 masl (meters above sea level) – Valley of Los Cintis with 300 hectares between 2,220 and 2,414 masl – Valleys of Santa Cruz with 100 hectares between 1,600 and 2030 masl – Various valleys in Potosí, La Paz and Cochabamba with around 200 hectares between 1,600 and around 3,000 masl Even though the vineyards in Bolivia are located between 17.00º and 21.53º latitude south of the Equator and above the typical viticultural belt of the southern hemisphere, the climate is temperate and semiarid due to the high altitude of the valleys. Coming down from the “Cordillera de los Andes” and “Cordillera Real” mountain ranges with picks of more than 6,500 masl (21,300 feet asl) down to the low lands of the Amazons, Bolivia has numerous small valleys where grapevines have been growing for centurie

Region: Tarija
The main varieties planted in the central Valley of Tarija are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Tannat, Garnacha and Barbera in reds and Muscat of Alexandria, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Franc Colombard and Chenin Blanc in whites. As much as 93% of the total grapes production in Bolivia is produced in the Central Valley of Tarija. As a result, 5.7 Million liters of wine or 97% of all the Bolivian Wine is also produced in Tarija by about 25 wineries of which 6 wineries concentrate the majority of the wine production. 4 Wineries concentrate the production of 4 Million liters of singani. The Central Valley of Tarija is located in the region of Tarija in the southern part of Bolivia bordering with Argentina between the latitudes 21.20º and 21.58º south. Most of the vineyards are concentrated in the provinces of Aviles and Cercado with small vineyards in the provinces of Arce and Mendez. Irrigation water comes from the rivers Camacho, Guadalquivir and Santa Ana as well as from the San Jacinto dam that feeds from the Tolomosa River. All rivers form later the Tarija River which is part of the basin of La Plata.

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
