2015 Vina Falernia Elqui Valley Carmenere
The Olivier family are behind the Falernia brand. They came to Chile, from Italy in 1951 looking for a better life. In the beginning they grew vegetables on their property and in 1995 planted wine grapes. Their Carmenere is made with 60% appassimento grapes (grapes that have left on the vine and sun dried for more complexity and concentration) and is soft and velvety. Flavours of fruitcake and sweet raisins and perfectly matched to red meat dishes.
