On the nose, there are generous aromas of fresh red fruits and spices, with herbaceous undertones. There is great concentration of fruit as well as ripe, well-integrated tannins on the palate. The finish is long and elegant. This wine possesses great aging potential.A great wine with lamb, duck, and game. It is also perfectly suited for entrees with full-flavored, spicy sauces.

The Single Vineyard collection is produced from small parcels in limited quantities in the finest vintages. They are exemplary representations of Chile’s most unique terroirs. Alto de Piedras is located 334 meters above sea level with eastern and western exposures in the Maipo Valley consisting of alluvial soil with a high content of rock, clay, silt, and sand, hence the name. On the nose, there are generous aromas of fresh red fruits and spices with herbaceous undertones. Concentrated flavors and ripe, well-integrated tannins coat the palate. This single vineyard Carmenère has a long, elegant finish following 14 months of aging in large oak barrels known as foudres.

This version of our very special and highly awarded Carmenère from our ?Alto de Piedra? terroir (Isla de Maipo, Maipo Valley) has a dark and shiny, almost purple, colour. The aromas have a great intensity and excellent fruit expression that remind us of all kinds of berries. The oak is perfectly integrated and gives complexity to the wine. You can also find some notes of violet, candy and chocolate, making it a wine with great body, fresh, juicy and elegant.

This is one of the most impressive and enjoyable Carmenères I have tasted for a very long time. It's in De Martino's single vineyard series and is a great expression of this variety grown where it is happiest and produces its best results – in the warm but moderate parts of Chile's coastal range in Maipo.

The last word in my tasting note was 'intoxicating' and although this is of course true in a literal sense (14.5% alcohol), I meant it metaphorically. It's a deep dark black cherry colour and has incredibly pure dark cassis fruit aromas with the merest hint of cassis leaf and capsicum so that you can't mistake it for any other variety. It shows wonderfully ripe Carmenère character without the slightest hint of overripeness: intense and rich and concentrated. There's a surprising and attractive freshness on the finish so that even though it is a big, powerful wine it doesn't overwhelm the palate. It's pure and fine with savoury, firm but melted tannins and a long finish. As I said, intoxicating.
