De Martino Estate Carmenere

De Martino Estate Carmenere 2017

Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChileDe Martino Winery was founded in 1934, and now has 4th generation brothers Marco and Sebastián at the helm, This Maipo carmenere spends 9 months in concrete and French oak barrels. With time in decanter or your glass, this opens to reveal some of the grape's charm, with bright herbal kirsch, leather, wild resinous scrub, and sapid plum notes. Tannins are worn softly nubby, carrying the medium-bodied palate to a peppery finish.Tasted: 11 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 private wine shops Producer: De MartinoDistributors: Lifford Wine and Spirits
