Wilier Mortirolo or Cannondale Synapse

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wilier Mortirolo or Cannondale Synapse

Wilier Mortirolo or Cannondale Synapse (carbon)... any views on which is nicest for longer sportive type rides (up to 60 miles/100k).

My inclination is to go for the Wilier because I prefer Campagnolo, but is Mirage too low a spec for a good carbon frame?

I can always donate a full Record group-set, to either frame, from another bike.
