Almaviva 2016, Puento Alto Chile

£185.00

Almaviva is a project born from the desire to make the best Chilean red the world had ever seen. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Vina Concha Y Toro decided to collaborate with both bringing different sets of expertise. Almaviva is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Time in 100% new French oak as well as time in the cellar are mandatory before release. This is undoubtedly one of the finest Chilean wines.

Tasting notes

Deep ruby in colour. The nose produces incredibly complex notes, varying from raspberry, blackberry, bilberry, toffee, chocolate, smoke, cedar wood, vanilla cracked pepper spice. These notes lead onto the palate, with exceptionally silky mouth-feel coming from the tannins and will only soften more over time. The concentration of the fruit means the length of the wine after the first sip lingers on and on and on. Exceptional!
