This is an intense, complex wine with aromas of roses, cherries, berries and figs. In the mouth it has a very good structure, with firm tannins, fresh black fruit, and a smoky, spicy character. A great match red meats, lamb chops, and strong or mature cheeses.
The grapes come from a special selection of 3 and 6 quarters of our finest vineyards in Villa Alegre, Maule Valley, which are specially managed and controlled to maintain a maximum performance of 6 tons per hectare (2.4 tons per acre) and high exposure of the fruit, producing a highly concentrated wine ideal for aging. Once in a stainless steel tank, it’s brought to a concentration of 20% to maximize the flavor, ripen tannins and develop color. The wine is aged about 15 months in new French oak barrels, with a production yield of 80,000 bottles.
