Miguel Torres Chile's Cordillera Carmenère is a grape varietal, aromatic red wine from the Valle de Curico in the Valle Central wine region.
In a very deep ruby red with strong red shades, this wine is presented in the glass. An expressive bouquet with varietal aromas unfolds in the nose - ripe blackberries and juicy currants merge with notes of eucalyptus and leather, accompanied by fine notes of cloves, bay leaves and black pepper. The body is wonderfully full-bodied on the palate with round tannins that are perfectly integrated. The aromas of the nose also pamper the palate and are accompanied by subtle spices and roasting notes of the barrel maturity. With a pleasant, persistent length, this Chilean red wine closes.
