What differentiates this wine is its superb balance and the freshness achieved despite the heat, something that only old vineyards can offer. This reveals sweet and very juicy fruit and a firm structure, as well as fine tannins and fresh acidity that accentuates the palate. Long and deep on the finish.

Established in 1934, the Chilean wine estate of De Martino is the result of one person’s dream of making the best wines of his region. Pietro de Martino, a native of Italy, moved to Chile to give wings to his dreams of making unique and stylish wines. He found his answer when he stepped foot in the region of Isla de Maipo. This place was rich in alluvial soils, and it enjoyed a Mediterranean climate, which helped De Martino to make his dream of creating elegant wines, a reality. Today, the estate is run by the fourth generation De Martino family members, with the same passion as the founder.
