A Chilean Revolution.
Carignan made from old vines in Maule that are a part of the revolutionary Vigno movement made by one of Chile's most rebellious winemakers.
95pts - James Suckling
Aromatic and earthy, giving an Old World impression.
This is a very aromatic wine with distinctive nose of dark berries, intense flowers, and a little tar. The blackberry and spices come out when you taste it, along with a little pepperiness. Medium-bodied.
Perfect with Chilean pastel de choclo (meat & corn casserole), grilled salmon or stews.
This 100% Carignan Vigno wine is sourced from two blocks of the Crucecillas vineyard planted in 1958 that are vinified separately. That is followed by a winery selection and the best lots are aged in third and fourth use French neutral oak for 24 months.
