Incredible for the money: stunning! Lusciously fleshy dark fruit and some smoke. Layers of flavour unfold in your mouth and surround your senses. Close your eyes and enjoy.

Carmenere food pairings: turkey, stuffed peppers, spicy sausage and a variety of other meats and firm cheeses.

Santa Alicia, located in the famous Maipo Valley, is an innovative winery utilizing leading edge techniques. Methods such as microclimate research, colonial selection, extensive laboratory analysis, and controlled fermentations result in wines of exceptional purity and character. However, it is the winery's use and respect of traditional methods that elevate its wines beyond the ordinary. Hand picking early in the morning, fermentation in oak and stainless steel, and further ageing in French and American oak barrels yields wines of intense character and suppleness.

Intense and limpid, bright red color. Pleasant aroma to black fruits and cassis, in harmony with the wood that sheltered it. Voluminous and well balanced, with delicate persistence.
