Sangiovese, Italy's Signature Grape

Sangiovese is Italy's signature grape, widespread, clonal, and broadly variable in quality.
Below is a list of Sangiovese wines reviewed and divided mostly by geographical viticulture, but I begin with Italian Sangiovese (is there any other kind?) listed simply as Sangiovese or by miscellaneous regions.
Keep in mind that from small family farming to vast vineyards of famous trademarks, Italy is reported to have a million vineyards, and will make this post a 'work-in-progress' in perpetuity.

Sangiovese (miscellaneous regions):
Castelluccio Le More Di Romagna D.O.C 2011 Sangiovese, $13.59-$15.99, 88 points
Cecchi Toscana I.G.T. 2012 Sangiovese, $6.79-$9.99, 85 points
Marchesi de Frescobaldi 'Pater-Paterna' Toscana 2015 Sangiovese (IGT), $9.99-$20.99, 85 points
Tenuta Sassoregale DOC 2013 Sangiovese Maremma Toscana, $13.99-$16.99, 87 points

  1. Nice selection, or should I say, selezione.

    1. VG: You should say! :)
      Keeping track of what wines I've had keeps getting more complicated; keeps me up at night (not a complaint)

  2. Do you have an Excel spreadsheet? :)

    1. VG: I might, but now that I have spent so much time on my "Index of Reviewed wines", I'm not inclined to use it.
      Do you use it?
