Winemaker Notes

A wine of remarkable structure and complexity. Intense ruby red color and black currant and menthol aromas. On the palate, notes of red fruits and spices blend harmoniously with ripe tannins to a lingering, delicate finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Family Collection is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 20% Merlot, 12% Syrah, 10% Petite Sirah and 8% Petit Verdot from old vines aged separately in oak barrels for one year, blended and put back in barrels for a further six months. It has a balsamic nose, quite showy, with bright fruit and a sense of light. The palate is a lot less oaky than in previous occasions. It's powerful and well-oaked but with stuffing and balance, in an XL style. Quite a surprise. 16,000 bottles produced.

Aresti Winery Video
In 1951, Vicente Aresti Astica acquired the Bellavista Estate in Curicó, a renowned winegrowing valley, and started building a family tradition of excellence in winemaking with passion at the core of their philosophy. Over half a century of meticulous work resulted in a tradition of high-quality wines that were the labels of choice of the most prestigious wineries at that time. The experience gained in making superior wines fueled Mr. Aresti’s motivation to start bottling and selling labels of their own. In 1999 and following major winery renovations and introduction of state-of-the-art technology, Viña ARESTI took the great leap forward into producing and exporting bottled wine. Aresti Winery is owned byACW, one of the most prestigious family-run wine operations in Chile. Nowadays ACW produces and sells various brands around the world. The foundations of Viña Aresti are the passion for excellence of its founder, Vicente Aresti Astica. After he passed, at 92, his daughters Begoña and Ana María Aresti López took over their father’s endeavor and persevere in the commitment they had learned from him. Viña Aresti, a company of the ACW, one of Chile’s most prestigious family winegrowing businesses, is located in Molina, in the Curicó valley, less than 200 km south of Santiago. New vineyards near the Claro river – Micaela, Peñaflor, and La Reserva – have been added to Bellavista, the original estate. The vineyards are situated in Curicó, Chile’s largest and most famous wine valley. With privileged climate, alluvial soil, a long dry season and a daytime/nighttime temperature differential of some 20ºC, this region offers the ideal conditions for the production of superior wines.

Bordering the Coastal Range in the west, and stretching as far east as the foothills of the Andes, the Curicó Valley has two major mesoclimates that allow it the potential to offer a great diversity of high quality wines. In the east around Molina and north of the Claro River, the chilling winds coming off of the Andes make this part of the valley cooler. In the west, the Coastal Range protects inland wine growing areas from the Pacific Ocean, making it hotter and drier. The valley can support a large range of grape varieties within these climatic variations.

In 1979 Miguel Torres, Spain’s largest family-owned producer of premium wine based in Penedès in northeastern Spain, invested heavily in the area. By introducing many modern technologies, Torres put the Curicó Valley on the international wine map and strengthened Chile's presence in the global wine market.

Curicó is one of the southern appellations of the greater Central Valley wine growing region, which includes from north to south: Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
