BROODING. LAYERED. VIVACIOUS.
This wine is made by one of Chile’s most rebellious and talented new generation of winemakers; Felipe Garcia. He breaks the rules by blending old-vine Carignan with Bordeaux varieties, and we are so happy he did.
92pts - James Suckling
This bright and brooding red blend shows the true potential of the Maule and Itata valleys.
Bright yet brooding. Up front, it is all fresh and expressive red berries. Then, on the palate, you find touches of herbs and cocoa. It finishes with bright cherry and vivacity.

Facundo is the wine that started Felipe's independent winemaking career. It blends old-vine Carignan with Bordeaux varieties from the heart of Chile (the Carignan and Cabernet Franc are from old vines in Maule Valley, the Cabernet Sauvignon is from Itata, and Petit Verdot is from Colchagua). The vineyards are naturally low yielding from granitic soils. The components are vinified, separated, aged for 28 months in third and fourth use French neutral oak, then filtered lightly before bottling.
