Winemaker Notes

Bright, but dark with deep red and violet nuances. Very elegant, complex, strong characters of Carmenere, with aromas of red ripe fruit, spicy, with hints of tobacco. Great structure, mouth-filling, sour chocolate, sweet tannins, powerful and concentrated. Dense, oily with lots of fruit giving a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 95
Wine & Spirits

If Carmín seduces with its buxom generosity, the 2007 Terrunyo feels more like a quiet beauty. This is Recabarren's deuxième vin, a selection from the Peumo Vineyard planted in the mid-1970s on the northern bank of the Cachapoal River. A sophisticated carmenère, as if tailored in black tie and tails, this has a structure based on a fine mesh of tannin that supports tart black fruit flavors. It hints at herbal notes and whispers of sweeter fruit aromas. Decant this if you open it now for game dishes like braised partridge; it will benefit from six to eight years' aging.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The fruit for the purple-colored 2007 Terrunyo Carmenere (which contains 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc) was sourced from Block 27 of the Peumo Vineyard in Rapel planted in 1987. The wine was aged for 19 months in 70% new French oak. It offers up a captivating bouquet of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, floral notes, black plum, and blackberry. This sets the stage for a full-bodied, dense, plush, full-flavored, incipiently complex Carmenere that has the balance and structure to evolve for several more years. It will provide optimum drinking from 2015 to 2022. Both vintages are approachable now which is a good thing because readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off these two beauties.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Lush and full. with deep blackberry, black currant and Mediterranean black olive flavors. Drink now through 2012.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Sleek and polished, displaying a pure, racy core of raspberry, black cherry and black currant fruit, laced with alluring black tea, mineral and tobacco notes. Very stylish. Drink now through 2012.

Sangiovese

View all wine

The perfect intersection of bright fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is the backbone variety in Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Elsewhere throughout Italy, it can make inexpensive wines for daily consumption ranging from inoffensive to deliciously easy. On the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed moderate popularity in California and Washington State over the last few decades.

In the Glass

Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with savory flavors of tart cherry, plum, tomato, fresh tobacco, anise, thyme, oregano, and dried earth. High-quality, well-aged examples will take on notes of smoke, clay pot, leather, gamey meat, potpourri, and dried fruits. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

Perfect Pairings

Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and grainy tannins create an affinity with tomato-based dishes, spicy meats, and anything off the barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines (with price tags to match) that are typically monovarietal or a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
