Caliterra Reserva Camenere
The grapes for the Caliterra Reserva Carmenere are harvested from Caliterra's Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. The vines in these vineyards are on average more than 18 years old and grown on granitic and clay soils with embedded stone. After the harvest the grapes are gently destemmed and macerated for 15 to 22 days. The must is then fermented at 26-28°C in 100% stainless steel tanks where the wine also undergoes malolactic fermentation. About 30% of the wine is aged for 7-9 months in barrels of second and third use to bring out fruit aromas and add more depth. The Caliterra Reserva Carmenere is ready to drink now.
Deep purple red with ruby hues, it is an intense wine with spices. Berries such as blackberries and blueberries appear on the nose at first, giving way to soft spicy notes like cinnamon and black pepper. The palate is silky and very fruity, with good volume and persistence. It reveals itself with great elegance and freshness, making this wine an excellent exponent of the great variety that is Carmenere.
