Wine saturated dark ruby color.
Complex but elegant and balanced taste wine that combines powerful tone cherry and sweet oak notes. Long aftertaste.
Wine with a complex aroma. Bouquet strong, but thin and soft, with hints of very ripe black currants, cherries, plums, garden flowers, cedar, tobacco, chocolate, black pepper, smoke and damp earth.
Wine is perfect for cold meats, red meat, duck and noble game, with meat pastes and mature fragrant cheeses.

Wine produced in one of the best vineyards of Chile, created under the joint technical supervision of both partners. Name "Almaviva", despite the Spanish sound, taken from classical French literature: Count Almaviva - the hero of "The Marriage of Figaro", the famous play by Beaumarchais (1732-1799), which was later the basis for the libretto of the opera genius of Mozart.
