Ilaia Carmenere Reserva 2014
A serious carmenere!
Producer: Viña Marty
Region: Central Valley
Appellation: D.O. Maule Valley
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby red with purple hues.
Different layers of aromas gives a unique complexity. Delicate and intense spices aromas, very characteristics of the varietal, with a high concentration of black fruit such as prunes and cherries. Notes of black pepper, dark chocolate, and roasted red bell peppers.
Sweet fruity flavours of black fruits such as cherries, blackberries, and dried prunes are predominant at the beginning. A subtle hint of vanilla, cloves, and mocha, are perfectly combined in the palate, enhancing the complexity of this beautiful and pleasant Carmenère. A full-bodied wine, with a great structure, a balanced acidity, round and silky tannins, it is ready to drink now or perfectly suitable for cellaring.
Long finish, full of black fruits flavours, and a peppery hint at the end, reminds you that this is a true example of a well crafted Chilean Carmenère.
