Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Amplus One from Santa Ema Vina exposes a classic Chilean savoir faire. The Carmenere 2017 shows aromas of mission fig, black plum, green bell pepper, graphite, sweet tobacco and sandalwood. Made from 85% Carmenere, 10% Syrah and 5% Carignan, this beautiful blend delivers a full body, freshness and a short finish. Palate: tart plum, blackberry, white pepper, slate, spice and cedar. Enjoy.
Santa Ema Amplus One 2017 is a fresh Carmenère from the Peumo, Cachapoal Valley. Although the valley is warm, cool night time temperatures have allowed a nice freshness to the Carmenère with bright blackberry, black currant leaf, dried herbs, dark chocolate flavours with a lingering pepper spice finish. Fresh acidity for food. Enjoy with lamb and pork kebabs. - Community Wine Reviews
