This wine is aromatic and intense with great volume in the mouth and achieves a balance between the fresh acidity and the texture contributed by 6 months? maceration with the skins. Vinification in amphorae contributes rich texture to the palate and results in a wine with tension, volume and smoothness. Ageing potential of around 10 years.
Mature cheeses, charcuterie, or simply amazing on its own.
All the work done in the vineyards is carried out sustainably and with the least intervention possible. De Martino strive to grow grapes that are as healthy as possible and that will produce pure, elegant and honest wines that reflect the land they come from. They were Chile’s first Carbon Neutral Winery, and their wines are highly awarded by critics and journalists (including getting top spot in Robert Parker's Chile review). De Martino continue to push boundaries by elaborating wines with different varietals and different terroirs, and are without doubt one of the hottest estates in Chile right now.
The grapes are destemmed and the whole berries placed inside the "viejas tinajas" (old terracotta amphorae). Alcoholic fermentation is carried out with native yeasts and the wine remains in contact with the skins for 6 months until malolactic fermentation is complete. The wine is then racked to another "tinaja" and aged for a further 6 months prior to bottling. No fining or filtering and no sulphites added.
