More information on wine critics and ratings

Derived from the Spanish word for wine, “vino,” with the letter “g” borrowed from Carignan, which makes up majority of the blend. Vigno is a single-vineyard Carignan produced from a 70-year-old, dry-farmed, head-trained, and non-grafted vineyard called La Aguada situated in the Maule Valley.

A beautiful, perfumed nose with elegant, yet rustic touches of cured meats, tree bark, smoke, ripe cherries, and subtle sweet baking spices. Aged 24 months in large neutral oak barrels, or foudres, this is a balanced, supple, meaty, delicious bottle of wine. 

Drinkable now, but will cellar beautifully over the next 10 years.

Robert Parker (RP) : 97 Points (2016)
Single Vineyard la Aguada is no longer mentioned on the label of the 2016 Vigno, which is also part of the Old Vines series. This wine is nothing short of spectacular, with a complex nose intermixing aromas of smoked bacon, wild flowers and berries, earth and tree bark, in a rare combination of power and elegance that takes them to a completely different profile than the rest of the Vigno association. Other than the intoxicating nose, the palate also reveals strong minerality and the austere and serious tannins from the granite soils. This is not only among the best Vigno bottlings, it's also one of the finest wines from Chile. This Carignan-based field blend matured in 5,000-liter oak foudres for 24 months. It has to be the finest year for the De Martino Vigno, very varietal, pure, precise, elegant and powerful. 6,439 bottles were filled in April 2018.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 93 Points (2014)
De Martino’s VIGNO is a blend of Carignan with 15% Malbec, sourced from granite soils and made with a little carbonic maceration. It’s fresh, focused and mineral, with no new wood, subtle reduction and bracing acidity. 2018-26. Alcohol: 13.5%

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2014)
A juicy and subtle wine with a medium body, round and soft tannins and a refined finish. Easy and pretty

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17 Points (2014)
Mid crimson. Both smoky and sweet-fruited. Lovely flavours of small dark-red berries. Full in the mouth, creamy and caressing but fresh too. Rich, smooth and spicy. Come and get me. Long too. (JH)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2011)
Brilliant ruby. Aromas of fresh raspberry and cherry, with suave floral and mineral nuances adding vivacity. On the palate, sappy, palate-staining red and dark berry flavors put on weight and gain sweetness with air. A powerful yet lithe blend with excellent finishing clarity and fine-grained tannins sneaking in slowly to add grip.
