About

92

This Syrah is made with grapes mainly from Marchigüe and with some Apalta, but in this case it is the fruit that does not rank for the Folly top, which in a way allows to give that wine a taste here, a peek. And what it feels like is very good. The wood is somewhat present, but the fruit behind it is very deep, with hints of graphite and a firm tannin structure, which speaks of at least three or four years of aging, without problems. - Patricio Tapia

Product Description:

"Montes Alpha, the pioneer wine that showed the way to all other Chilean premium wines. It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche, having proven early on our credibility as a world-class premium wine producer. All our Alpha wines have received 'Top Scoring' and 'Best Value' from the influential Wine Spectator magazine: quite an achievement for Chilean wines at this price level.

Aromatic nose with outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as blackberries and figs. Aromas of crème de cassis meld with mild notes of leather and dark chocolate, which are very characteristic of Syrah from Colchagua. The palate is well balanced with rich acidity, incredibly smooth tannins, tremendous structure, and generous volume." - Winery
