Crafted from a premium selected vineyard parcel in the Valley of Maule. A true expression of cool-climate terroir with a breathtaking intensity and richness. Deep and intense red, with dark fruit, tobacco and balsamic notes. Great structure with ripe tannins and good acidity that bring freshness and a long finish.
