MONTES ALPHA Carmenère

The Wine

  • Deep and lively ruby-red color. The wine shows elegant Carmenère character, with lovely black pepper aromas, and hints of red berry, chocolate, vanilla and plum. In the mouth it is distinctively smooth, with rounded soft tannins. Long finish. The oak is beautifully integrated and balanced.

    The grapes come from our El Arcángel Marchigüe estate, located at the western end of Colchagua valley, where, 18 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, the relatively cool climate allows this late-ripening variety to mature slowly and smoothly and reach full ripeness. Clay soils give strength and power to the wine. After fermentation, the wine is moved to French oak barrels where it is aged for 12 months.
