A medium-plus bodied, single-vineyard Carmenère from the Colchagua Valley with ripe blueberry, earthy and flinty mineral flavours on the palate. Tannins are easy. Enjoy now on its own or paired with chicken and ribs from the BBQ.

Carmenère food pairings: rich tomato sauce and pasta dishes, hard cheeses, grilled pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Made by the Caliterra winery in Chile, the Tributo 2017 exposes rich aromas of ripe raspberry, mellow cherry, green bell pepper, slate, spice, chocolate and sandalwood. Harvested in the Colchagua Valley, a blend of 90% Carmenere, 8% Syrah and 2% Malbec, give this charming Chilean a medium body, polished tannins and delicate acidity. Palate: Cherry, raspberry, white pepper, graphite, sweet tobacco and sandalwood. Excellent wine for any occasion. Enjoy!
From the Colchagua Valley wine region, Caliterra Tributo 2017 Carmenère is produced from a certified sustainable, single vineyard Carmenère. Medium-plus bodied with ripe dark plum, cherry, ripe dark berry, fine herb and mocha flavours on the palate. Enjoy now with grilled fare. - Community Wine Reviews
