The Cinsault Viejas Tinajas from De Martino has been fermented and aged as naturally as possible in amphorae over 100 years old, without intervention and in search of a faithful reflection of its origin. It is old bush vines (35 hl/ha yields), on granitic soils, farmed with horses, whole berry ferment, no punch down, gentle pressing. In the winter the malolactic is ready. The wine is not filtered or fined and there is no added sulphur. It is very silky and Pinot-like with red cherry fruit. The watchword here is delicacy with a touch of the wild man, Chile but not as you know it son!

De Martino are self-styled specialists in the Carmenère, being the first Chilean winery to export a wine labelled with this grape variety. They have since challenged themselves to produce world class examples, realised in wines such as Altas de Piedras.
The De Martino wines are in transition. Seeking the maximum expression of terroir they are linking the grape variety to the most appropriate soil and topography. They are picking the grapes earlier to obtain greater acidity in all their wines, looking to reduce alcohol levels, fermenting with natural yeasts, and, from 2011 vintage, none of the wines will see any new oak whatsoever. The estate range will be fermented in stainless steel and cement, Legado will be vinified in used barrels, and the Single Vineyard range will be aged in traditional foudres. Keep your eyes out for more of their wines on our on-line shelves!
