Almaviva is a joint venture between Concha Y Toro and the Rothschild family, begun in 1998. Like her father before her saw in the Opus One project, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild saw the potential to create a world-class claret from these own-rooted, 37 year old vines on purely alluvial soils high in the “Puente Alto” zone of the Maipo Valley. James Suckling gushes “The aromas of iodine and blackcurrants with roses and lavender make the wine extremely perfumed. It’s full-bodied with a tight, fine-tannined palate that shows linear flow through the center palate. It’s vertical and integrated, adding depth and serious quality to the wine.” This wine has averaged over 98 points the past 5 years. Definitely one to collect and drink. NOTE: PRE-ARRIVAL OFFER. PAYMENT IS DUE NOW. WINE WILL ARRIVE JANUARY 2022.
