The Sangiovese jersey, which is based on the Giro 102 Squadra jersey, is our celebration of the “Wine Stage” of this Giro d’Italia, the 34.7-kilometer individual time trial that starts in Riccione and finishes in San Marino (RSM). Its graphics and colors in particular offer a tribute to Sangiovese, an Italian red wine grape varietal that is widespread in Italy and cultivated between Romagna and Campania. The varietal probably originates from Tuscany, and its name could derive from the term “sangue di Giove” (“blood of Jupiter”), a testament to the ancient bond between wine and divinity. In terms of technical characteristics, the Sangiovese jersey uses a combination of fabrics that provide an optimal fit, quick drying and exceptional comfort. The main fabric, Velo Light by Sitip, ensures lightness and quick drying; the perforated side panels enhance breathability; and the construction of the sleeves, with no seams at the ends, provides unrivaled comfort.
