De Martino Alto de Piedras Carmenère

These single vineyard wines, from very small properties and limited production, are the fruit of work started in 1996 investigating Chile from north to south and vinifying over 350 different terroirs. Of these, only a few were selected, with the objective to create wines that are a true reflection of their origin. 

Tasting Notes

This prize-winning Carmenère is a brilliant deep, dark purplish colour, nicely framed with roasted tobacco and loam notes, with a core of crushed plum, steeped black currant and sage in reserve. The finish is muscular, but rounded and integrated, with the loamy edge lingering.

Grape variety: 100% Carmenère, ungrafted, with trellising and 5,000 vines per hectare.

Ageing: The wine is aged for two years in oak foudres, with the aim of ensuring that the aromas and tastes from the wood are not transferred to the wine and thus do not mask the characteristics typical of its terroir. 

Best served with: Excellent with duck, lamb or red meat preparations with spices.

Serving Temperature: 16° - 18°C.

Aging potential: This wine can be enjoyed now but will gain complexity over the next
15-20 years.
