label image label image

Tasting Notes

Sanlor is made with 100% organically grown Sangiovese grapes. A deep red Bordeaux-lix wine with lovely aromas of blackberry and other ripe fruit, notes of vanilla and spices. Ideal with hearty dishes such as rich pastas and main courses of meat or port. As a family operated winery, it is family that inspires the names of some of the wines. The name Sanlor is an homage to the owner’s son Sanjay and his wife Lorena.
