Vina Almaviva S.A. Vina Almaviva Almaviva 2009
Deep, intense, ruby red color with purple tones. The nose is pure, well focused and elegant. Complex and layered, it reveals fresh and delicate aromas of cassis, black berries and violet, associated to fine notes of vanilla, cacao, licorice, and spices. The wine is filling the mouth with smooth, well refined and juicy tannins, underlining the plenitude of the ripe fruit. The texture is incredibly round and silky, and the finish is long and fleshy. A superb wine, precise in its character, accessible and remarkably balanced.

Notes on the Vina Almaviva Almaviva 750ML 2009

Technical Notes The must is first cooled and the juice is left in contact with the skins in order to extract their rich color and aromas, then warmed before the alcoholic fermentation and final maceration take place. The second fermentation, the Malolactic Fermentation, takes place spontaneously, immediately before or just after the wine is drained off by gravity into new French oak barrels. The skins and seeds are pushed into basket presses and lightly pressed to extract the press wine, added in small proportions by the winemaker to the final blend. Aged for 18 Months, new French oak.

Additional Notes The name Almaviva, though it has an Hispanic sonority, belongs to classical French literature: Count Almaviva is the hero of The Marriage of Figaro, the famous play by Beaumarchais (1732-1799), later turned into an opera by the genius of Mozart. The label, meanwhile, pays homage to Chile’s ancestral history, with three reproductions of a stylized design, which symbolizes the vision of the earth and the cosmos in the Mapuche civilization. The design appears on the kultrun, a ritual drum used by the Mapuche. The label bears the name Almaviva in Beaumarchais’ own handwriting. Two great traditions thus join hands to offer the whole world a promise of pleasure and excellence.
