The Story

A tribute to Manso de Velasco, Governor of Chile during the colonial period. A brave, enterprising man, known for his strength on the battlefield, and founder of the city of Curicó, where these vines grow. The Finca Manso de Velsaco estate is exclusively given over to Cabernet Sauvignon, which produces this intense, deep-colored wine. This wine is made using only grapes from vines that are over 115 years old. Its 2006 harvest was chosen as Chile’s Best Cabernet Sauvignon by Descorchados, Patricio Tapia’s wine guide.

Distance from the coast: 85 kilometers.

The soil has a loamy/sandy texture with a high percentage of different sized pebbles, indicating that surface water once flowed very close by.
It has a moderately acidic pH with low organic matter content, making it soil with low fertility.
In the deep, slightly rocky and sandy soils, the hundred-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vinestocks produce limited quantities of grapes that show the typical characteristics of the variety.

The area has a warm, sub-humid climate, with very cold nights, according to its bioclimatic indices. The influence of the Andes can be felt at night, when the temperature drops close to freezing point.

Written Notes

Intense purple colour with slightly garnet hue. Rich nose with distinct spiciness, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves, obvious oak flavour, dark chocolate and fine toasting, mocha, in the background dried black stone fruit and hints of dark berries. Peppery spiciness in the background. A wine with firm tannins, mature character with dryish finish yet little fruit and flavour expression. Hints of bitterness in the finish. Well-structured medium length yet austere finish.
