Idiom Sangiovese 2020

R300.00

Enticing and emotive. This modern and elegant Stellenbosch Sangiovese presents a tantalizing nose and vibrant mouthfeel. Initial signature, red cherry flavours develop into sweet savoury spices, complex gravel, and cinnamon notes with fine tannins on the finish. A silky well-balanced wine to treasure and enjoy. Try with pork belly or Fiorentina steak.
