Winemaker Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon presents classic aromas of blackcurrants, blueberries and violets combined with tobacco leaves and cedar notes. Shows great fruit intensity, with mid palate weight backed by fresh acidity and ripe, fine grained tannins and a lingering finish.

James Suckling
Another wine from this producer that’s so clear in its delivery of fruit; freshly picked blackcurrants, citrus, nutmeg, tea leaves and herbs all spring from the glass. Medium-bodied with tons of tangy fruit, wrapped in a layer of fine tannins and coated in bright acidity.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sourced from vines planted in Isla de Maipo between 1992 and 1998, the 2017 Legado Cabernet Sauvignon is from a warm vintage when they harvested early to keep the wine at 13.1% alcohol. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts after a cold soak and matured in used barriques for 13 months. It has balsamic aromas of camphor, blackberries and cassis, quite classical and old-style, with the textbook tannins from the variety. This is quite in line with the 2015, both dry and warm years.

De Martino Winery Video

Founded in Isla de Maipo (Chile), since 1934 the De Martino family has specialised in producing wines that reflect their origin and the character of each vineyard, based on solid principles of sustainable farming and traditional winemaking techniques. Today, the winery brings together the experience of the third generation of the family - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino- with the dynamism and vision of Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, the fourth generation. De Martino labelled and exported Chile’s first Carmenere in 1996 and was a pioneer winery working century-old vineyards in the Itata Valley, incorporating old winemaking techniques that set a precedent in South America.

On De Martino's tours, you can taste wines from Chile’s very diverse regions, try one of the world's best Carmenere wines and see the exciting process of wine creation. Just one hour from Santiago, a bilingual guide will explain the whole process of making our wines in a tour that starts with the work in the vineyards and goes through to bottling and ageing. You will also be able to find out about our innovative winemaking techniques in amphorae and foudres, methods that are unrivalled in Chile’s wine industry. This is the ideal opportunity to discover the best and most varied range produced in Chile.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
