TASTING NOTES Almaviva 2015:

  • View: Deep ruby ​​color, intense, very attractive.
  • Nose: pure and straightforward, it reveals clean aromas of blackberries, cassis and licorice, associated with subtle notes of vanilla, cocoa, incense and spices.
  • Mouth: generous, round tannins, concentrated and fine, underlining the fullness of ripe fruit. Wine, elegant, focused and polished, complete with a long, dense and meaty end.

APPELLATION: Maipo Valley.

BODEGA: Concha y Toro / rothschild

GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

2015 harvest corresponds to a dry year, with a winter rainfall of 200 mm between May and October 2011 in Puente Alto, only 2/3 of normal.

A warmer than usual September, made the sprouting occurred earlier in Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenere. However, lower temperatures delayed sprouting October of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The summer was dry and much warmer than in the previous two years, with pint 10 days earlier than usual. March was particularly hot, with the average maximum temperatures within the highest historical averages.

As could be expected, the harvest began two weeks earlier than usual, on March 15 with the first Merlot, and ended on May 18 with the last Carmenere. However, most of Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested under lower between April 17 and May 14 temperatures. The same happened with the Carmenere between 8 and 18 May.

These conditions generated a healthy fruit quality, with optimal levels of maturation, concentration and purity.

DEVELOPMENT AND AGEING: 19 months new French oak barrels.

I've purchased on this website.
Deep red cherry colour. Tobacco aromas. A red fairly astringent.

This rather mild wine pairs perfectly with roast lamb I've already tried it. I love to sharing this wine with friends.
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. Slight smell of tea in this Maipo Valley. The texture of this wine from Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) was oily.

4/5

At the supermarket.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour. Deep scent, like coffee. Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.

Fun to drink with friends.
Rather clear red hue. Smells like cedar wood or pine tree. I kind of liked this liquorice aroma.
I don't remember the pairing, but the wine was delicious.
