Vina Almaviva Puente Alto

Wine Description

Immensely rich with striking blackcurrant flavours, a firm tannic structure and a long, long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) Deep, intense ruby red. The nose reveals pure, delicate aromas of ripe blackcurrants, wild strawberries and blackberries, blended with hints of minerals and fine notes of vanilla, coffee, licorice and spices. The mouth shows outstanding balance, a firm tannic structure anbd exceptional length. The tannins are ripe, refined and concentrated, contributing to the density and elegant texture of the wine. A complex, graceful and brilliant wine, pure and precise in its mineral character, persistent and layered, harmoniously balanced by a great acidity.
