De Martino Old Vine Malbec Carmenere Las Cruces Colchagua Valley 2014
Other Reds | Chile
We got a LOT of emails about this wine (read the history about the winery on the product page) once Invino clients started drinking it….so we scored a bit more for you! Seize the day!
This luscious wine (from a vineyard planted in 1957!) earns every one of the 93 points -- juicy, pure, round and warm with toasted vanilla bean, mocha and red currant, soft and generous and toasty delicious. This is priced so well considering the pedigree, it’s truly a wonder that you can drink it nearly every night…we have been! The best price anywhere on this rare cuvee!
If you missed it last time, best jump today… This is likely the last we’ll see of it!
About the Producer
"Founded in Isla de Maipo (Chile), since 1934 the De Martino family has specialised in producing wines that reflect their origin and the character of each vineyard, based on solid principles of sustainable farming and traditional winemaking techniques. Today, the winery brings together the experience of the third generation of the family - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino- with the dynamism and vision of Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, the fourth generation. De Martino labelled and exported Chile’s first Carmenere in 1996 and was a pioneer winery working century-old vineyards in the Itata Valley, incorporating old winemaking techniques that set a precedent in South America."
