De Martino Alto de Piedras Carmenere 2018


The 2018 vintage had optimal weather conditions with a cool, dry autumn that enabled gradual, delicate ripening, making this one of the best in the last decade. Alto de Piedras 2018 is probably the most elegant version of this wine that we have made. It has aromatic layers of black fruit, spices, tobacco and a light mineral note of graphite. On the palate, fine, silky-smooth and broad tannins and ripe fruit are perfectly balanced with the fresh acidity. This wine has the intensity and structure to evolve for the next 20 years.

Winery Profile:
Pietro De Martino arrived in Chile from Italy in 1934 determined to find such a unique place like the wine he dreamed of producing. Maipo Island, with its rocky soils and Mediterranean climate, offered the perfect conditions to produce classic wines in a fresh and elegant style.

Since 1934 and for four generations, the family has specialized in producing wines that stand out for their sense of place, purity and balance. To this end, they practice sustainable agriculture and traditional winemaking, thus achieving wines that represent us, as well as being a true reflection of the vineyards from which they come.

Today, with more than 80 years of history, the winery combines the experience of the third generation of the family -represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino- with the dynamism and vision of the fourth generation, made up of Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino who, together with oenologist Nicolás Pérez, lead the projects of the cellar.
