Vina Almaviva 2020 is today one of the greatest wines of Chile, it is signed by the estates Philip de Rotschild.
Almaviva is the sublime result of an alliance between two historical wine families, Baroness Philippine de Rotschild and Don Alfonso Larraín de Conchay Toro with the objective of creating a Franco-Chilean wine. The diversity and uniqueness of Chile's terroirs has allowed the production of wines in exceptional climatic conditions, relying on the unique know-how of France through its search for elegance and its enduring traditions.
The 2020 vintage in Chile has experienced particular climatic conditions related to a great drought throughout the year. Nevertheless, the grapes enjoyed a perfect flowering giving birth to wines with precise aromas, great balance and freshness. The diversity of vine age, type and variety of grapes offered many possibilities to make this vintage remarkable.
Almaviva 2020 is the result of a blend composed of Cabernet Sauvignon (68%), Carménère (24%), Cabernet Franc (6%), Petit Verdot (2%). The vinification is carried out over a period of 18 months in new French oak barrels. The specificity linked to each of the grape varieties undoubtedly makes this wine even more unique.
The color: has a nice ruby color, quite dark and vibrant
The nose: is pure, delicate with a nice concentration of aromas. The nose also offers a nice bouquet of blackberry, ripe blackcurrant and wild strawberry accompanied by mineral and violet notes.
The mouth: is marked by a remarkable balance, filled with freshness and structure. We find in the middle of the mouth ripe and coated tannins, associated with aromas of vanilla and dark chocolate. The evolution in mouth is perfectly balanced with a light acidity and a final full of length and harmony.
The advice 12 botlles: This great Chilean wine has a great potential of keeping and will be perfectly matched with beef tournedos, kobe beef but also white meat, poultry. We recommend you to serve this wine at a temperature of 16°C-18°C for a better tasting.
