Wine shiny, bright ruby-red color.
The taste of wine is fresh, fruity, soft and harmonious tannins, hints of ripe red berries, nuances of vanilla, spice and smoke, long finish.
The aroma of wine red fruit and berries (cherries, plums, ripe strawberries, raspberries, cherries) well balanced with hints of toast and vanilla.
Wine matches perfectly with dishes from game birds and red meat, pasta, stews, risotto and soft cheeses.
To create a wine "Castillo de Molina" Pinot Noir Reserva was selected Pinot Noir, grown on steep slopes in the valley of Curico. Rather mild climate of the area allows the grapes to ripen slowly and show intense color and a good balance of acidity and alcohol. The grapes are harvested in early March and runs cold maceration for 5 days. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out with selected yeasts under controlled temperature of 25 to 27ºC. 3 times per day cap wort immersed down manually. After 15 days of maceration, the wine is aged in French oak barrels (30% are new, 30% - 30% and annual - biennial) for 10 months. The wine can be drunk already, or stored for 4 years.
