Casillero del Diablo Carmenere

Carmenere disappeared from its place of origin in Médoc, north of Bordeaux, France following the phylloxera outbreak in the 19th century. It reappeared in Chile at the end of the 20th Century - originally believed to be Merlot but then DNA testing showed that it was actually Carmenere.  

This wine is easy to drink with smooth, round tannins, and attractive aromas of black currant and coffee. Ideal with aged cheese.

APPELLATION Central Valley.

SOIL Riverbench and benchland associated soils.

AGEING Aged in oak barrels.

COLOUR Intense and deep purple red colour.

NOSE Very expressive fruit with outstanding mature berries, forest fruit joined with delicate hints of coffee and toast coming from the barrels.

PALATE From the start, it’s a remarkable expression of Carmenere thanks to the typical fruit like plums, blackberries and some spicy touches. The tannins are polished and long with a medium body at the end.

FOOD PAIRING It expresses marvelously well with game meat, garnished with sweet-andsour sauces and berries.
