Con Brio 2016

$58.00

Deeply concentrated and intense aromas of ripe
blackberry and cassis fruit melded with notes of dark raspberries entwined with spices of liquorish, cloves and black pepper with reflections of vanilla and sandalwood. Long, lingering but at the same time soft tannins across the palate and oaky characters build complexity, combined with a vibrant acidity.
