De Martino Single Vineyard Old Vines Limavida 2013
Region: Maule Valley, Chile
Grape Varieties: 85% Malbec and 15% other grape varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere.
Since 1934, four generations of the De Martino family have specialised in producing wines that stand out because of their sense of place, purity and balance. The climate in Maule Valley is considered mild by Chilean standards, with significant diurnal temperature variations, which support the creation of high quality tannins.
Bright, enticing red colour. On the nose it features aromas of black cherry, liquorice and subtle notes of oak. On the mouth, it is a wine with great acidity, fresh, with red fruit; juicy, raspberry, cherry, tannins grip very well to the palate. Medium to long finish. This wine would be perfect with wild boar chops, meat and mushroom lasagne or a lamb stew.
