TINTILLA ESTATE Catherine di’M Sangiovese/Merlot Tintilla have become renowned for their Sangiovese over the years, selling out quickly as soon as it hits the cellar door.

Either way, this wine is definitely worth a taste! TASTING Medium ruby in colour with aromas of blackberries, cherries and redcurrant. The tannins are soft, dry and persistent. FOOD MATCH As a classic Italian style it goes well with any Mediterranean food.
