Casadei Sogno Mediterraneo Red 2015

22.00

Winemaker Notes: This wine is powerful, yet supple and elegant. The nose opens with intense red berry and cassis fruit highlighted by notes of dark chocolate and tobacco. Firm and silky upon entry, the palate is equally intense with chewy and sweet tannins and a very persistent finish with dark berries and sweet spices.
