Winemaker's Notes

The word 'Amplus' comes from Latin for important, sophisticated, distinguished, and honorable. This line represents the union of tradition and distinction of its Italian ancestors with the innovation of new times. These are modern wines with tremendous complexity and elegance, with whites that feature all the potential of the new Leyda Valley and reds with the tradition of Peumo in the Cachapoal Valley.

Color Deep violet-ruby-red. Aroma Expressive and long, recalling red and black cherries, prunes and a touch of tobacco and pencil led. Palate Well-structured and powerful, with well-rounded tannins that lead to a voluminous and seductive finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Carmenere dominates this blend in notes of red bell pepper and herbs, augmented by syrah and carignan. It's smooth, the tannins firm and delicate, while acidity accentuates the sensation of delicious juiciness."
