The first Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine from Viña Casa Verdi …
The Chilean eagles that take care of our vineyards and maintain the ecosystem naturally, inspire us to produce this sparkling wine Chardonnay BRUT Blanc de Blancs. Coming from the cold slopes of the Maule valley, it is produced through the "Charmat method" or also called the Italian method. Our VERDI AGUILA Brut has a bright yellow color with fine and intense bubble laces. On the nose, floral and citric aromas stand out with hazelnuts and grated apple at the end. In the mouth it is very balanced and fresh with a fruity and dry aftertaste.

the MAULE valley
he largest winemaking region in Chile is also one of the most diverse in terms of geography and climate, encompassing the Andes to the east, flat and sunny valleys across the central corridor, and the coastal hills to the west, which allow both red and white varieties to find an optimal soil where to be planted. With a Mediterranean Climate and largely influenced by the cold winds of the Andes at night, the daily temperature variation is enlarged, and the time of exposure to very high temperatures is reduces, which helps the fruit to ripen slowly and in good conditions. Unlike many other wine harvesting regions in Chile, the Maule Valley suffers no influence from the sea in its temperature, yet still maintains a favourable daily temperature differential. These climate conditions grant a favourable intensity in aroma to the Carménère, full of spices and black pepper. In the same manner, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and some white grapes also prosper in excellent conditions.
