2015 La Puttanesca Sangiovese Merlot

 
 

$20.00

Time is money, and so the Neapolitan ladies of the night needed their favourite dish to be quick and easy to prepare.

The dish they created was so aromatic and delicious that it was displayed in open windows to tantalise and captivate the clientele, who soon labelled the fare ‘La Puttanesca’.

Like the pasta this wine will also captivate the clientele and be labelled ‘La Puttanesca’ – a wine of easy virtue.
