      Winemaker Notes

      Golden yellow, brilliant and warm with a pretty nose. Citrus aroma, grapefruit and juicy pear with soft scents of ripe apricot lead way to an extraordinary palate. This is an elegant wine with notes of candied orange peels wrapped with a potpourri of rose petals.

      Made with grapes dried outdoors, protected from the sun and rain, this is a honeyed wine that weaves tropical fruit into a dense tapestry of flavor. With 166 grams of residual sugar, it’s a wine with weight and abundant sweetness. However, amid this orgy of sweetness, a penetrating beam of acidity appears, shining a spotlight on the naked fruit and sending it off in a more refreshing finish.

      Erasmo, Maule Valley, Chile
      Image of winery
      In 1995 Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, owner of the Col d'Orcia estate in Montalcino, Tuscany, decided to expand his production of fine wines to Chile where he foresaw significant potential to produce world-class wines.

      The vision of Erasmo took Count Cinzano and longtime consultant Maurizio Castelli to Chile's Central Valley, where they finally decided upon the area of "Riserva di Caliboro" in the Maule Valley with its gently sloping alluvial terraces, intense sunlight, dry southerly winds and optimal rainfall.

      The highest quality French grape clones were imported from France for this project and the past six years have been spent perfecting vineyard locations, soil exploration, and winemaking techniques.

      The result of this commitment and dedication is Erasmo, a unique Chilean wine that follows in the footsteps of the Cinzano family's longstanding tradition of winemaking excellence and innovation.

      Maule is the Central Valley’s most southern and coolest zone, reaching a southern latitude of 35°S, yet it is still warmer and drier than Bío-Bío to its south. The Maule Valley enjoys success with a unique set of grapes.

      It lays claim to the local variety, Pais (synonymous with Tinta Pais, which is actually Tempranillo), which has dominated much of the region’s area under vine until the recent past. Now many growers, not confined by the tradition and regulations of the Old World, also successfully grow Cabernet Sauvignon.

      While Maule’s total area under vine remains relatively static, its old Carignan vineyards are undergoing a great revival. The VIGNO (Vignadores del Carignan Vintners) group, an association in charge of promoting this long-forgotten variety, is getting fantastic results from the old vines in its dry-farmed coastal zones.

      The Maule includes the subregions of Talca, San Clemente, San Javier, Parral, Linares and Cauquenes.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
