Product Description

  • Cabernet Sauvignon - Red Chilean Wine
  • Cauquenes is a historic location for Chile's winemaking tradition. Embedded in the Maule Valley, its privileged climate and clay and granite rich soils give this Cabernet Sauvignon unique structure and fresh fruit expression.
  • Colour
  • Bright, intense, violet-red.
  • 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
  • This Cabernet Sauvignon is very well structured with pronounced character, firm tannins, and an abundance of fruit, such as plums and black cherries. Pleasing toast from the oak lends greater complexity, and the finish is long and persistent.
  • Wine of Chile
  • Pack size: 75cl

Vinification Details

History

  • The story behind one of Chile's most famous wines began more than 120 years ago. Don Melchor, the 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

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.
