Chosen one of the 5 best Carménère de Chile (Vinos de Chile Magazine 2007).
ANICETO BARREL RESERVE wines are made in honor of Mr. Aniceto Verdi. Traditional, powerful and elegant wines, made in the Curicó and Maule valleys for decades. Our oenological team selects the grapes for these wines by hand, which after vinification are mainly aged in American oak barrels. Our ANICETO BARREL RESERVE Carménère has an intense red-violet color. On the nose it is very fragrant, with aromas of ripe red fruits, such as cherries, strawberries and figs. With a spicy background, aromas of black pepper and menthol stand out. On the palate it is broad and with great fruity concentration, it has well rounded tannins, a sensation of sweetness on the middle palate and a long and pleasant aftertaste.

GREAT CENTRAL VALLEY
The Central Valley of Chile – protected by the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Andes Cordillera to the east – is the ideal region for winemaking in Chile. With a stable Mediterranean climate and diverse soils, it offers excellent conditions for the production and growth of numerous grape varieties. Its large thermal variation causes dry summers with radiant days and cold nights which help the grapes reach their maximum potential of colour, aroma, and flavour.
