  • Aroma
  • Expresses delicate notes of black fruits, such as plums and cherries, accompanied by a delicate touch of toast from ageing in oak barrels.
  • Palate

History

  • "More than 100 years ago, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro reserved for himself an exclusive batch of his best wines. To keep strangers away from his private reserve, he spread the rumor that the Devil lived in his cellar. Hence the name: Casillero del Diablo" (The Devil's Cellar)

Regional Information

  • Soils rich in red clay and granite give rise to Reserva Especial in Cauquenes, 350 kilometres south of Santiago de Chile. Clay has been a key element in many creations throughout human history, and today it has an important role in making this wine. The clay-loam soils over a granitic base in our vineyards contribute structure and character to this wine.

Decant this wine as long as possible to take away

3 stars

Decant this wine as long as possible to take away the harshness, but don’t expect too much even then. A bit disappointing in all honesty.

A wine with very intelligent notes

5 stars

A beautiful bottle of wine with very delicate aromas and a smooth taste. This particular wine definitely needs decanting to really benefit from the flavors. I would suggest decanting for an hour or at the very least taking the cork out 3 hours prior to drinking. For the price this bottle offers excellent value for money
