The 2017 Almaviva Almaviva is a remarkable red wine hailing from the prestigious Maipo Valley region in Chile. Crafted by the renowned producer Almaviva, this wine embodies elegance, power, and balance, making it a true gem in the world of red blends.

In the glass, the wine displays a deep ruby color with rusty edges, enticing the senses from the first glance. On the nose, aromas of plum, cherry, cassis, olive, chocolate, and spice intertwine to create an intoxicating bouquet that is both complex and inviting.

Upon tasting, the wine reveals its true character. It is full-bodied and fresh, with intense tannins that remain bright and not heavy on the palate. The blend is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Carmenère, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Merlot, resulting in a harmonious fusion of flavors. Ripe plum and currant notes take center stage, accompanied by oak-based spice that adds depth and complexity.

This vintage has received high praise from esteemed wine critics. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 94+ points, noting its concentration and herbal notes. James Suckling, on the other hand, bestowed a perfect score of 100, describing it as an emotional wine that touches the soul. Wine Spectator rated it 93, highlighting its taut and savory nature and the presence of freshly crushed green herbal accents.

The Almaviva Almaviva 2017 is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but it also possesses great aging potential. It is recommended to wait until at least 2027 to fully experience its incredible pleasure. Whether you choose to savor it now or lay it down in your cellar, this wine promises to captivate and delight with its impeccable craftsmanship and unforgettable taste.
