Beautiful and delicate ruby red color. Intense and elegant nose with predominance of strawberries and flowery hints that all together makes this Pinot Noir a very lively, harmonious and generous wine. In the palate is clean, well balanced, with soft rounded tannins and a good level of acidity. The wine is lengthy in the mouth showing a well integrated and balanced oak. Due to the very intense microbiologic control this wine is very lightly filtered, what makes the aromas and color very expressive of Pinot Noir.
"The 2007 Alpha Pinot Noir is more expressive aromatically, has a lovely satiny texture, raspberry and black cherry flavors, and a sleek personality. Ripe, concentrated, and flavorful, it may well evolve for 1-2 years and can be enjoyed through 2017. Aurelio Montes remains one of Chile's great innovators and quality leaders. His latest releases are first class from entry level to the top of the portfolio.
