Casa Solís has sprouted from a seed in a far away land. A seed in sewn in 1952 with the Family Solis winery in Spain has grown from sapling into a fine tree. Now its own seeds take rootin a new land: Chile. Casa Solís is a union of past experience in an exciting new destination.
Serve between 15 - 18ºC
Wines of Chile continue the legacy of Spanish wine culture in the ‘New World’. The rugged and wild landscapes, with the currents of the Pacific to one side and the Andean slopes to the other, allow excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of varieties brought from the Old World: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay which prosper with indigenous grapes like Carmenere.
Delicate on the nose, slightly spicy in the background with notes of black forest fruit and cherry.
In the mouth it shows a sensation of roundness and a certain warmth with a powerful finish on the palate, with firm tannins and notes of blackberries. Long and elegant finish.
Ideal to pair with lean red meats, roasts, pasta, empanadas and pizzas. It harmonizes very well with chocolate sweets.
The manual harvest takes place towards the middle of May at the optimum moment of maturation.
