Why We Love This Wine
Founded in the late 1990s by fresh food business mogul Gonzalo Vial, Vina Ventisquero began making wine in the year 2000 with a single purpose of creating distinctive, high quality wines that resonate with their target audience globally. Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker Felipe Tosso, the Winery was 1st established in the coastal Maipo Valley shortly followed by expansion into the Casablanca Valley and the prestigious Apalta Valley for their premium wine range. Continually undergoing extensive research to extract the most accurate expressions of Chile's unique terroir, Vina Ventisquero now counts Estate Vineyards in the country's top wine producing areas: Maipo Valley, Casablanca Valley, Apalta Valley, Leyda, and the Colchagua Valley. Garnet in color, the nose evokes a veritable waterfall of cascading red berry & black currant aromas. On the palate, this wine displays elegance & balance with a tart acidity & delicate tannins leading to a big, fruity finish.
Winemaker / Tasting Notes
It's a Cabernet Sauvignon of intense and deep color with a pleasant fruit aroma together with notes of wood resulting from aging in barrels. This is a very elegant reserve wine.
