Winemaker's Notes:

The Cabernet Franc blends red fruit aromas with spicy touches of dark chocolate finishing with smooth, silky tannins. Pairs well with grilled food and tomato-baced pasta.The grapes for this wine are 100% Cabernet Franc and come from a vineyard block planted in a privileged location between the Chimbarongo Creek and the Tinguiririca River on the Maquis Estate, in the heart of the Colchagua Valley

About Calcu:

In the local Mapuche language, Calcu means “healing doctor” or “magician.” And indeed, winemakers Alejandro Jofre and Ricardo Rivadeniera have created a magical "Super Chilean" blend that expresses the diversity of the Colchagua Valley.

Like the bull on label, Calcu is exuberant and unrestrained. Rather than being tied to a particular terroir, Calcu is made with grapes harvested from throughout the Colchagua Valley, revealing different aspects of the valley’s dynamic character with every vintage
