De Martino Legado Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The grapes that go into this wine come from the Maipo Valley, where the soil and climatic conditions make this the best place for growing Cabernet Sauvignon in Chile. This wine is made with grapes grown in two different vineyards, one on alluvial gravels and the other on colluvial soils. Each contributes with perfectly complementary characteristics. Violet color, black-fruit aromas and a lush palate that offers elegant tannins and a well-rounded finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. De Martino (Reinventing Chile) was founded in 1934 by Pietro De Martino Pascualone who came from Italy in search of a place to satisfy his passion for winemaking. He found a perfect site, just 31 miles from Santiago, in Isla de Maipo—a village so-called because of the numerous branches of the Maipo River that surrounded it until the early 20th century. A powerful earthquake have since dried up all but one large branch of the river. Today, De Martino has over 740 organically managed acres of vineyards and creates wines that are a true reflection of their origin. The Legado Range offers the best representation of a specific grape variety from the most outstanding and innovative Chilean wine-producing valleys.
