2020 Almaviva, Rothschild/Concha y Toro, Puente Alto

2020 Almaviva, Rothschild/Concha y Toro, Puente Alto

This is Almaviva's 25th harvest and was one of the earliest they've done thanks to a wam and dry growing season. The result is impressive, and the team have harnessed that heat, resulting in a wine that retains beautiful freshness and length. There's tons of ripe black fruit, layers of sweet spice and a creamy, voluptuous texture.

Tasting notes

Fresh and deep nose, full of blueberries, minty cassis, mussels, cigars, dark spice and roasted sesame oak, which will need a year or two to fully integrate. A medium-to full-bodied Almaviva with supple, silky tannins and a wealth of black and blue fruit that provides a lot of charm now. Voluptuous and flattering on the palate, hallmarked by its tension and taut texture. Very long. This is the 25th anniversary bottling. 68% cabernet sauvignon, 24% carmenere, 6% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Drinkable now, but better from 2024.
