Carménère Riserva Legado, Estate De Martino, Maipo 2015
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.
Aromas of dark fruit, tobacco, a little spice and some green vegetal notes. This medium-bodied wine tastes of dark fruit and spice, just like the nose, along with a bit of black pepper. The green notes also continue and are even more pronounced in the mouth. It ends with tobacco and coffee notes on the long finish.
