In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
Dark ruby red, with attractive purple tones.The nose, elegant and layered, reveals pure and delicate aromas of ripe cassis, blackberries and wild strawberries, nicely associated with vanilla, spices and coffee beans. The mouth shows outstanding balance, great acidity, elegance, freshness and exceptional persistence. The tannins are ripe, round, well condensed and silky, enhancing the dense and fleshy character of the year.A brilliant wine, constant and precise in its character, all in finesse and harmony.
