Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva Legado, Estate De Martino, Maipo 2014
Estate De Martino, Maipo, Chile
From the beginning of our winery in 1934, we have worked to create wines that represent us as a family. Our philosophy is summarized in creating wines that reflect their origin in the purest way possible, bringing origin and balance together.
Over the years, we have explored more than 347 vineyards throughout Chile, thus covering most of the Chilean territory from north to south and from the Andes Mountains to the coast. That is how we have selected the vineyards that best represent our philosophy and which we believe have the highest potential.
Our agricultural practices are based on organic principles and timely harvest, with the aim of achieving balanced wines. Our wines are exclusively fermented with native yeasts, disregarding enological components that may alter their personality. Likewise, aging is made in stainless steel, concrete, 5.000 litres foudres, used barriques (in average ten years old), so that the imprint of our wines reflects their origin without alterations.
The Legado Reserva Cabernet displays bright ruby red with exuberant red fruit character, mingled with violet, smoke and hints of mocha. The palate is full and firm with intense raspberry, interwoven with blackcurrant fruits, vanilla and spice, finishing long and rich with hints of tobacco. Allow to breathe, even decant, and will only get better and better 7-10 years. Best served with roast beef or a rack of lamb.
