Bodega Volcanes de Chile Reserva Carmenere 2018
|Region||Chile, Rapel Valley|
|Brand||Bodega Volcanes de Chile|
Reserva Carmenere reveals the typicity and elegance of its origins.
Appearance: A deep violet-red colour. Aroma: Intense aromas of red and black fruit, bitter chocolate, notes of herbs, toast, tobacco and olives. Mouth Feel: A fresh and broad mouth; nice palate with gentle and mature tannins, plus its typical black pepper and spicy character.
Food Pairing: Ideal to pair with casserole dishes, red meat, stews, lamb, sausages. Also, it goes perfect with typical Chilean preparations such as corn dishes (pastel de choclo, and humitas), porotos granados (beans) and empanadas.
Aromas of herbal tea, dried beef, black olive and spiced plum are correct for Carmenère. On the palate, this is full in body but shows tartaric burn. Generic black-fruit flavors of cherry, plum and blackberry finish flush and with some heat.
