2014 Briganti Red
Brigantia was the goddess of the largest Celtic tribe in the north of England. They constantly challenged Roman rule, and armed conflict frequently erupted when the confines of Pax Romana became unbearable.
Today the vinification of hybrids such as Baco and Foch remain forbidden in Europe and yet in Canada these grapes thrive, and so we too prefer to play outside the rules, taking the best of old world and current wine cultures to create a collection of perfectly blended wines.
Notes of blueberry and strawberry with hints of myrtle, black cherry, cocoa, earth and smokey wood: soft and fruity palate with an enduring licorice and vanilla finish.
Our Briganti red has become a symbol for the creative and "rebellious" spirit of Vieni. The fact that this wine is apt for everyday consumption pleases us as it has an unsuspecting complexity. The versatility of this wine certainly exists; it's depth continues to be discovered with every new pairing at our table.
