Tasting Notes

Bramasole 2016 is a dark, intense ruby red color. On the nose, notes of black berries and violets combine with spicy hints of pepper and vanilla. Its palate is mouth filling and soft with sensations of black berries that re-emerge accompanied by pleasant, lively tannins. Its finish is long and characterized by after-aromas of vanilla.
