Origin: Puente Alto, Chile
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
Attractive dark crimson, deep and opaque. The nose is pure and layered, revealing delicate and focused aromas of black cherries, ripe cassis and violet associated with black licorice, cacao and toffee notes. The mouth shows outstanding amplitude and balance, a luscious texture, bright acidity, elegance and persistence. The tannins are fine, smooth and silky, enhancing the fresh and juicy character of the year. Precise and well-built, the wine combines harmoniously elegance and freshness in a cooler and generous vintage.
