Winemaker's Notes:

Elegant floral notes lended from the Malbec combine with aromas of tobacco and spice typical of Cabernet. They are framed by vanilla notes contributed by the oak aging. On the palate, the acidity and freshness are prominent but are balanced by soft, round tannins.
My Notes:

About De Martino:

The De Martino family has been producing wine in Chile's famous Maipo Valley for almost 70 years. The wines reflect the area’s terroir, resulting in big, rich, extracted flavor. Delicate use of oak adds complexity, but the strength of De Martino wines is in their fruit. These wines are concentrated and elegant, each with a distinctive personality.

The winery has received a flurry of recognition from Chile’s most prestigious wine guide. The 2004 Guia de Vinos de Chile singled out De Martino winemaker Marcelo Retamal as "Winemaker of the Year" and named the Legado Sauvignon Blanc, Legado Carmenere and Gran Familia Cabernet Sauvignon as the top wines in their categories.
