Tasting Notes:
Straw yellow color, intense aroma, pineapple, herb. In the mouth is balanced, fresh, high acidity, at the end has a slightly salty taste, typical and characteristic of the wines of this area.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91+ Points (2018)
The 2018 Legado Chardonnay was produced with fruit from the Espinal vineyard from Tabalí in Limarí, and it's a textbook barrel-fermented and barrel-aged Chardonnay from a cooler year but with good ripeness and superb acidity. The wine matured in barrel for 18 months, and it's really impressive at this price point. It's serious and harmonious, with a chalky sensation on the palate. 57,653 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2019.

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2014)
A solid white with sliced apple and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium body. Hints of minerals too. (5/2016)

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2014)
From one of the most innovative and exciting producers in Chile comes this cool-climate, single vineyard wine. It's elegant yet full-bodied, with citrus and ripe apple aromas. There's oak but it's subtle, thanks to the use of old barrels, and the creamy texture is well supported by a fresh, vivacious acidity.

VIGNO is a Carignan from an old, 4.5-hectare vineyard planted in 1955. It is a complex wine with great ageing potential that shows all the promise of this classic variety from Maule. Our VIGNO is one of the wines grouped under Vignadores de Carignan, an association of producers that seeks to boost this traditional variety.

These are characterful wines from selected single vineyards that embody the style of De Martino. La Cancha is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon and our best expression of the variety. This vineyard in Isla de Maipo was for many years a football pitch (or “cancha” in Spanish), hence its name.
