De Martino Las Cruces Malbec / Carmenere 2019


2019 was a warm vintage for this vineyard. We had a long and dry growing season, with high temperatures (30°+C) on several days. This meant the picking date was crucial to avoid over
ripeness, and at the same time retain natural acidity and achieving phenolic ripeness. These conditions translate into a wine with great fruit definition and richness of texture with excellent
depth and very fine tannins. The wine shows elegance and poise, and a long and attractive finish. Although it can be enjoyed now its structure will allow it to develop and gain further complexity and integration over the next couple of decades.

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.
