Enticing and emotive. This modern and elegant Stellenbosch Sangiovese presents a tantalising nose and complex mouthfeel. Initial signature red sour cherry flavours develop into riper, darker fruit notes. Complex, earthy, leathery and cinnamon notes combine with savoury spices to enhance the sweet and sour profile of Sangiovese. A silky, well balanced wine to treasure and enjoy.
