2006 Vina Almaviva Proprietary Red Wine Puente Alto
|Varietal:||Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot|
Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.
