ABOUT THE WINE
The 'Tres Palacios' winery is a family business, founded in 1996 by Don Patricio Palacios and his wife, Maria Inés Covarrubias. With patience—and much passion—they began their search for an area that had never before been used for winemaking.
They settled on the Cholqui sector of the Maipo Valley, 16 km (10 miles) from the city of Melipilla. The unique location of the vineyard protects them from extremes of heat and allows the grapes to ripen slowly and completely. In a setting reminiscent of the crater of a volcano, this terroir is unlike any other in Chile’s Central Valley.
Intense red in colour, on the nose you'll find red fruit and rasberries, as well as delicate touches of pepper, cassis and slight notes of tobacco. On the palate, the fruit and pepper return, along with a good presence of tannins leading to a long finish. This is an easy drinking wine with potential to age for up to 8 years. Best served around at 18 degrees.
Ideal with red meats, stews, semi-ripe cheeses and spicy dishes.
