The Best of Two Cultures and 96 Points Robert Parker Made from a blend of three classic Bordeaux varieties - where Cabernet Sauvignon predominates - Almaviva is the result of the fortunate encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its land, its climate, and its vineyards, while France contributes with the technical knowledge of winemaking and its traditions. The result is a wine of exceptional elegance and complexity. Its launch was a huge boost for the development of Chilean wines in international markets.
Attractive dark ruby color, deep and opaque.
The nose is pure, focused and layered, revealing delicate and clean aromas of blackberries, ripe cassis, currants and violet, associated with fine notes of tobacco, cedar and coffee bean.
The mouth shows outstanding amplitude and balance, luscious texture, bright acidity, broad structure and persistence.
The tannins are well refined, smooth and silky, enhancing the fresh and juicy character of the year.
Precise and polished, the wine combines harmonious elegance, richness, ripeness and freshness in an exceptional and superb vintage.
