Winemaker Notes

With a captivating ruby red color, La Piu Belle 2012 is an elegant, voluptuous and scented blend. Its Cabernet Sauvignon heart joins delicately with black fruit aromas, such as blackberry or dried plums, and flowers as violet and lavender given by the Syrah, highlighted by those characteristic fresh spices from the Carménère. Besides this sweet aromatic complexity, there are notes of 24-month in new barrel, where aromas of mocha and coffee, along with dried fruit discretely show themselves and transform this nose into an infinite festival of elegance and pleasure.

An incredibly attractive mouth with a fresh, soft and silky attack, with a touch of minerality presenting velvety tannins with a long end and a delicate acidity. Elegant and balanced, La Piu Belle 2012 is the reflection of modern winemaking art, generating an experience worthy of being shared.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carmenere, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
A rich and round wine with lots of fruit and round and soft tannins. Full body, juicy and delicious. A sexy and voluptuous wine. Drink now.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Lithe, with subtle graphite and slate notes to the rich dried red fruit and savory flavors. The crisp, focused finish features hints of licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2023.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Plump aromas of raisin and baked black fruit announce a ripe wine from a warm year. A sappy palate with heft and thickness holds dark-fruit flavors of black plum, black cherry, prune, vanilla and tobacco. On the finish, this sticks to ripe and dense. Drink through 2022.

With an outstanding reputation for its bold reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere, the Cachapoal Valley spreads through the northern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with a continuous backdrop of the majestic Andes to its east. This region reaches as far north as the southern outskirts of the city of Santiago where it meets the famous region of the Maipo. The Cachapoal Valley produces no shortage of plum and berry dominated full-bodied reds with aromas and flavors reminiscent of mint, cocoa, spice or smoked meat.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
