Ribs with Red Wine Barbecue Sauce

A Syrah-Grenache blend works well as a base for the sauce with its mineral backbone, and notes of herbs, lavender, and spiced cedar. Wines that taste like baked fruit or cocoa are fine, too.

About Sangiovese

Sangiovese is the most important red wine grape variety in Italy’s Tuscany region, responsible for such famous wines as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, among others. Wines made from Sangiovese tend to be medium to full in body, with crisp acidity and firm tannins, black and red fruit flavors such as cherry, and savory herbal notes of anise, tomato leaf, and dried green herbs, with stony, earthy nuances.
