Vinification Details

  • The Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere grapes for this wine are sourced from the Maipo Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this blend were hand harvested at the end of April and Carmenere grapes at the beginning of May. The grapes were at their peak aromatic development and had perfectly round tannins when they were harvested.


  • The winery is one of the most modern in Chile and also the first winery in Chile with a certification to offset its CO2 emissions. Kulapelli is the name for the “three spirits” who used to inhabit the Maipo valley where the grapes are now grown. Alejandro Galaz, Chief Winemaker at Vina Ventisquero, has been working there since 2002. His experience is represented in the quality and complexity found in this Finest* blend. It showcases the elegance of the wines that the Maipo Valley produces.

Red Nectar From Chile

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

I really like wine from Chile having been there a couple of times, especially the Carmenere. This wine is delicious, smooth, full of flavour and compliments a rib-eye steak to perfection.

Pretty good

We have been purchasing this wine for over 3 years. During this period we have also tested others but nothing compares to Tesco Finest Cabernet Sauvignon Carmnere . Also great value compared to its competitors. Great taste and aroma.

Nice smooth wine

Review from tesco.com

Nice smooth red which you can drink on its own or with food. Nice flavour but not overbearing for anyone that doesn't like a very strong red. For the price a great wine.

This wine is very non descript

Review from tesco.com

One of my favourite wines, the wines of Chile are generally good, but I think this is one of the great ones. Goes great with spaghetti bolognese.

Suits me nicely

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Dry and fruity and full bodied, just what I like. A classy red wine for the price. One of my favourite wines from Tesco and a mainstay to accompany our roast beef. Probably drinks better if decanted and left for twelve hours, but rarely happens because we drink it at the first sitting
