De Martino – one of Chile’s leading organic producers – has developed the Organic Estate collection as a way of honestly representing various varietals and their origin. The Organic Estate Carmenere is the ideal food pairing wine with fresh notes of red berries and subtle hints of tobacco and spices. Grapes are harvested from organically certified estate-owned vineyards in Maipo Valley. De Martino practices minimal intervention in the cellar, aging only 30% of the wine in used French oak barrels for 12 months, while letting the balance rest in stainless steel, rendering an easy-drinking, well balanced wine. Serve alongside spicy cuisine and hearty red meats within seven years.
De Martino is one of Chile’s pioneering wineries. It is also one of the leading organic producers, owning 12% of all certified organic vineyard area in Chile. These estate wines are serious examples of Maipo’s potential for producing high quality wines which are at the same time organic.
