Heritage Super Rosso di Stellenbosch Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 2009

Rich dark colour, with enticing aromas of cherries and dark chocolate. Notes of redcurrants, fruits of the forest and salami on the palate. The addition of the barrique matured Cabernet Sauvignon component gives this medium bodied Sangiovese structure and stature, making this a true Super Rosso blend. A velvety, elegant wine with a long lingering finish.
