Dense and very, very deep.
- Maipo Valley, Chile
As one of the inaugural “first growths of Chile", the 2017 continues an amazing run of form for the estate with two 100-scores in the last three vintages, making it increasingly investable, given its score and price point. The Almaviva is a must for Bordeaux fans who will enjoy tasting this alongside richer vintage clarets and more sophisticated Napa Cabernets.
"The aromas of blackberry leaves and iodine are wild and exotic here with mussel shells and earth underneath. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with powerful tannins that show muscle. It’s structured and powerful. Dense and very, very deep. Don’t touch this until 2025." 100/100, James Suckling
