From the exotic climate and unique soul of the Jumilia wine region, comes a wine bursting with aromas of rich fruit and luscious sweet spices. The deep violet color and long, well balanced tannins add to the enjoyment of the wine. Despite its name you can’t go wrong with Wrongo Dongo. The wine has plenty of stuffing to hold its own with the heartiest of roasts, steaks and barberques, yet forward nuances of fruit lends the wine to lighter dishes as well as simply enjoying it on its own with friends. Dongo to the party with it!
