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

Elaborado a partir de uma mistura de três variedades clássicas de Bordeaux - onde predomina o Cabernet Sauvignon - Almaviva é o resultado do afortunado encontro entre duas culturas. O Chile oferece sua terra, seu clima, e seus vinhedos, enquanto a França contribui com os conhecimentos técnicos de vinificação e suas tradições.
O resultado é um vinho de elegância excepcional e complexidade. Seu lançamento foi um enorme impulso para o desenvolvimento dos vinhos chilenos nos mercados internacionais

Baron Rothschild Almaviva 2015
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.
Deep red cherry colour. Tobacco aromas. A red fairly astringent.
- View: opaque bright red.
- Nose: snuff, blackberries, hints of stones, flowers, notes of bitter chocolate.
- Mouth: juicy flavors of dark plum, cherry, berry compote, creamy and lush flavors.
APPELLATION: Puente Alto.
GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere and Petit Verdot.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.5%
