'San Giorgio' Lungarotti 2017

San Giorgio by Lungarotti is a red wine that is full-bodied, intense and structured: a wine for aging. Its aroma is warm and complex with clear flavors of red berries, sweet spices and black pepper. On the palate it recalls the nose, the components intertwine in a perfect balance with interminable end
