The De Martino family, originally started their wine-making tradition in Italy, and have been heralded as pioneers of the Chilean wine world.  They are renowned for being the first to identify, bottle and export Carmernere.  They are doing great work in reviving traditional and lesser-known varietals such as País, and have also been named as Chile’s first Carbon Neutral Winery.  The País and San Francisco grapes for this wine are put through a ‘Zaranda’, a traditional tool made of wood and canes that is used in Itata to gently separate the stems from the berries.  This means that the grapes are much less likely to be damaged prior to the fermentation process, thus minimising the risk of any damaged grapes spoiling the wine.  Native yeasts are used in a relatively natural fermentation, and no sulphites are added prior to the wine spending 12 months ageing in French oak barrels.

This wine is a beautiful ruby red colour, and has a herbal yet red fruit perfumed character on the nose.  Medium bodied, yet packs an intense punch with textured tannins and grip.  A long finish, which would pair well with all manner of red meats, but especially wild boar or venison.  However, despite its complexity, you could happily enjoy this with some rustic homemade pizzas or a charcuterie board with friends.  Try it slightly chilled on a warm Spring afternoon
