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. 

Tasting Notes
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.
 
Vineyard Notes
The varying conditions throughout the growing season presented challenges. Ultimately, the microclimate we enjoy served to enrich the fruit, with the ideal spread in intraday temperatures in September. The Baco Noir fruit was harvested from two blocks, the Foch and Chambourcin were both from our eastern blocks. 
 
Production Notes
A late start to spring higher than normal levels of precipitation through June and July raised concerns for this vintage. August, however, brought a return to seasonal weather and an above average temperatures for September pushed the fruit to maturity.
 
Winemaker's Notes

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.

We are always excited by the use of hybrids and in this case, we see them shine in an excellently blended final result.
