Montes Alpha Carmenere Chilean Red Wine 750mL


90 rating Vinous “The Carmernere Montes Alpha hails from Apalta and Marchigüe and is blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Rich violet in the glass. The nose delivers ripe blackberry aromas with hints of white and green pepper. Indulgent in the mouth with firm tannins, an ample, extractive palate and good body. The cleansing finish is of dark fruit.”

Deep ruby-red with an eye-catching, violet hue. On the nose it’s complex and elegant. Pronounced, delicious aromas of ripe red and black fruit melt into inviting chocolate, mocha and brioche. The nose is well-balanced, with a little spice in the background. The French oak lends some toasted notes that complement the aromatic pro le, while adding a slight sensation of sweetness. On the palate, it shows itself to be a wine of great Carmenère character and typicity, with rich acidity that is well balanced with the generous body. The tannins are velvety and give way to a long memorable finish.

Highly recommended with red meats, stir-fried beef and vegetables, pork chops, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, lamb chops, and mushroom ravioli.

Blend: 90% Carmenère; 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
