Almaviva 2021

Red wine | Puente Alto, Maipo Valley

The (Franco-)Chilean elite!
This great red wine lives up to its reputation, with generous aromas of blackberries and blackcurrant, combined with delicate notes of graphite, violet, vanilla and dark chocolate. Its palate has fine, well-integrated tannins, which give the wine a voluptuous texture, perfectly supported by a pleasant freshness. A model of wholeness and harmony. The result of a collaboration between the de Rothschild family and Viña Concha y Toro, Almaviva expresses its Bordeaux conception, while remaining distinctly Chilean!

    James Suckling
    A fresh and discreet Almaviva with subtle notes of pencil shavings and cigar Wooden box mingling with blackcurrant, accompanied by nuances of spiced chocolate and peppermint. Nuanced and subtle on the nose. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with silky tannins in a harmonious finish. Very long in the mouth. Composed of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Carmenère, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Can be enjoyed now, but will take time to develop its complexity. -James Suckling

Viña Almaviva

Viña Almaviva

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Don Alfonso Larraín, president of Concha y Toro, signed a partnership agreement to create a great Franco-Chilean wine that they called “Almaviva”. The estate includes a mansion, a bodega and a 50 hectare vineyard planted with three typically Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenère. The name Almaviva was borrowed from classical French literature: Count Almaviva is the hero of Beaumarchais' famous play The Marriage of Figaro and also pays homage to the ancestral history of Chile with the reproduction of a drawing symbolic of the Mapuche civilization.
