The spicier 2018 Single Vineyard Alto de Piedras has notes of Carmenere with good ripeness, which translates into more aromas, good purity and freshness, with a touch of paprika and red pepper, very fine tannins and a velvety texture with some chalky tannins. This is the opposite of the 2017—they harvested late after a long and slow ripening, when the grapes had the chance to develop their full aromatic and taste profile. 11,340 bottles were filled in October 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.
