Carignan made from old vines in Maule that are a part of the revolutionary VIGNO movement.
This is a very aromatic wine with distinctive nose of dark berries, intense flowers, and a little tar. The blackberry and spices come out when you taste it, along with a little pepperiness. It is earthy and medium-bodied, giving an Old World impression.
Perfect with the Chilean pastel de choclo (meat and corn casserole), grilled salmon, or some stews.
The 2014 Vigno is sourced from this same old vineyard in Melozal, which is also the source for the Vigno of Torres and Valdivieso. The nose is ripe, open and aromatic, elegant and nuanced. Tasted next to the other Vigno, this is one of the most aromatic and heady. The palate is full-bodied but nicely balanced by electric acidity; it is powerful and elegant at the same time. A very showy Vigno, it is juicy, chewy and tasty.The Wine Advocate April 2017
A ripe and fruit red with blueberry and orange peel character. Full body and flavorful finish. Drink now.James Suckling May, 2016
Offers powerful minerality, with roasted root vegetable and red fruit flavors that are backed by crisp acidity. The lithe finish is loaded with sanguine notes, showing some peppery hints.Wine Spectator 2018
