Carigno de Maule is a Carignan grown in the Cauquenes neighborhood of the dry inland area of the Maule Valley, known as the Secano Interior. This Guzmán family vineyard is located 35 kilometers from the coast. The soils are granitic with a high presence of quartz. The vines are ungrafted, 75 years old, dry-farmed, and bush-trained.

This terroir truly brings out the very best of this variety. The grapes for this vintage were harvested on March 25, when they had reached optimal phenolic ripeness.

The vinification process occurred in stainless steel tanks. The grapes were destemmed and selected, with some of them slightly crushed to gently release their juice. A three-day cold maceration followed, leading to alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts from the vineyard. Gentle pump-overs were performed to homogenize the tank’s contents. Temperatures were controlled to ensure they did not exceed 75°F-77°F. Once alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wine was left in contact with the skins and seeds for an additional eight days. Afterward, the wine was racked off, and the solids were pressed. The press wine was blended with the free-run wine. Subsequently, the wine was racked into fifth-use 225-liter French oak barrels, where it aged for a total of 20 months.

Color: Deep ruby red with violet hues.

Nose: Abundant notes of raspberry and cherries, extremely floral and fresh, with hints of tobacco indicating an elegant evolution in the bottle.

Taste: In the mouth, it is a very fruity wine, fresh, and consistent with the nose. It possesses intense acidity that prolongs its sensation in the mouth. The tannins are firm and possess character, providing layers and an interesting vertical structure to this Carignan.

It is recommended to serve at no more than 61°F. It is highly recommended to pair with foods such as deer, duck, quail, strong cheeses, and dishes with a mild sauce.
