<10 tasting notes
They didn't produce their single-vineyard Carmenere in 2016, but I tasted the 2017 Single Vineyard Alto de Piedras and also the 2018. This is going more in the direction of an old-school claret, with moderate alcohol (this is 13.3%) and ripeness for a warm and dry year like 2017, when they harvested earlier. You can feel the warm year, but the wine is terribly harmonious. It has a fine texture and is serious and balanced, really impressive. 10,944 bottles were filled in March 2019.
Eduardo Jordán left De Martino to join Miguel Torres's project in Chile. So, De Martino has hired a new young winemaker, Jaime de la Cerda, who comes with 13 years of experience at MontGras. As for the wines, they have a couple new labels: Las Olvidadas, from vineyards in Itata that they bought in 2013, and D'Oro, a late harvest from Isla de Maipo. 2017 was a year marked by crazy wild fires, 2018 was a cooler vintage, one of the finest in the last 20 years, and 2019 was again warmer.
