Reviews of purchase Ventisquero, "Vertice", Colchagua Valley DO, 2012
Wine of deep ruby color with purple hues.
The taste of wine is balanced, rounded, warm, with hints of black berries and spices, soft silky tannins. The finish is long.
The aroma of wine is woven from the notes of black and red berries, faceted nuances of black pepper, spices, vanilla and chocolate, which appeared due to aging in oak barrels.
The wine goes well with dishes of Indian, Thai, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, with elaborate dishes. It can be served with cheeses, red meat, wild boar, venison, lamb and game.
