Don Cristobal 1492 Sangiovese
- Mendoza, Argentina
- Bodega Don Cristobal
Bright garnet colour, with deep hues. Its aromas are fruity, with a touch of cherries and fresh plums, characteristic of this grape native of Tuscany – Italy. On the palate, a nuance of acidity makes it vibrating and fresh. Harmonious, elegant and complex.
