Tasting Notes

The Piu Belle 2018 elegantly shows the new face of Carmenere. Aromas of blackberries combine with ripe plums and fine spices delivering freshness. Notes of blue flowers, violets, and lavender unfurl in the glass like the cool sea breezes which nightly sweep the vineyards. Vivid and precise, dynamic tannins mark the mid-palate. Bright acidity gives the wine an almost endless finish. Twenty-four months of aging in French oak marries flavors of blue fruits with nuances of rich coffee and mocha. This intriguing combination expresses the spirit of the new world imparting a memory that lasts a lifetime.
