De Martino Legado Carmenere
Blend: 100% Carménère
From: Chile, Maipo DO
By: De Martino family
Carmenere grapes from two vineyards are blended together to create this intense, full bodied Chilean red; one on a terraced hillside in the Isle de Maipo and the other in the foothills of Chile’s Coastal Mountain Range. Both vineyards are owned by the De Martino family; vignerons with four generations of wine expertise.
The Italian De Martinos moved to Chile in 1934, settling in the Isle de Maipo. Specialists in making wines from Bordeaux grape varieties, the family set to work growing vines in the Chilean countryside. 80 years or so later the fourth generation of De Martinos are ploughing forwards with new projects, blending traditional wisdom and modern knowledge to produce their wines. Legado Carmenere is lightly filtered and aged for sixteen months in French oak barrels.
