Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This variety disappeared from its place of origin in Médoc, north of Bordeaux, France following the phylloxera outbreak in the 19th century.
It reappeared in Chile at the end of the 20th Century.
Casillero del Diablo's Carmenere is smooth and delicate with intense colour, smooth, round tannins, and attractive aromas of black currant and chocolate.
From the Central Valle, with Riverbench and benchland associated soils, this Carmenere is aged in American oak barrels, giving it a dark and deep purple colour.
The aroma is bursting with luscious fruit flavours, ark plums and blackcurrant, black chocolate with hints of coffee and toasted American oak.
On the palate, notes of dark plums and spice, generously framed by toasty American oak with a soft and well structured mouthfiling texture.
Food Pairing: It expresses marvellously well with game meat, garnished with sweet and-sour sauces and berries, as well as mature cheeses.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
Extended product information
If you require further product information, including information about allergens in this wine,
The story behind one of Chile's most famous wines began more than 120 years ago. Don Melchor, founder of Concha y Toro, stored batches of his best wines in an underground cellar. When he noticed that bottles had been stolen, he spread a rumour amongst the locals that a devil lived in his cellar. Hence the name of Casillero del Diablo, the devil's cellar. Since 2008, Diablo wines have received more than 80 awards from internationally recognised competitions, including 8 Gold medals and 18 Silver medals.
Crafted using grapes from Chile’s Rapel Valley. Warm days followed by cooler nights provide near-perfect growing conditions, resulting in rich, smooth fruity flavours. www.chileanlegend.com
