Item Description

Wine Advocate 91
"The Legado Reserva range is produced in the most renowned valleys in Chile. Vines were planted between 1992 and 1998
on an alluvial terrace with abundant gravel and just the right level of clay to make it ideal for this variety. The grapes were manually harvested during the third week of March 2018 and the average yield was 1.5 kg per vine. Grapes are destemmed and sorted before being transferred to stainless steel tanks where they underwent a cold maceration before spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. The wine was aged in old French oak barrels, for 12 months. The wine is not fined and is only lightly filtered
before bottling in May, 2019. This wine is a lively violet color with fresh and ripe aromas of blueberry and cassis, complemented by notes of tobacco leaf, graphite and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with an intense ripe fruit core balanced by very fine tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish."

View all from De Martino
De MartinoFrom the beginning of our winery in 1934, we have worked to create wines that represent us as a family. Our philosophy is summarized in creating wines that reflect their origin in the purest way possible, bringing origin and balance together.
Over the years, we have explored more than 347 vineyards throughout Chile, thus covering most of the Chilean territory from north to south and from the Andes Mountains to the coast. That is how we have selected the vineyards that best represent our philosophy and which we believe have the highest potential.
Our agricultural practices are based on organic principles and timely harvest, with the aim of achieving balanced wines. Our wines are exclusively fermented with native yeasts, disregarding enological components that may alter their personality. Likewise, aging is made in stainless steel, concrete, 5.000 litres foudres, used barriques (in average ten years old), so that the imprint of our wines reflects their origin without alterations.

"Beautiful balance, fresh acidity, nice fruit and earth tones with a long finish. This was one of 5 or 6 SA cabs and so far, its my favorite of the lot. 18 dollars? So good."

"We thought it could use some more time to mellow the tannins; but good as it is."
