LAST ONLINE WINE TASTING FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY VINTAGE
After a successful online tasting series through Concha y Toro’s IGTV, this past August 28th, the last session was held with guests: Massino Leonori, Héctor Urzúa and Marcelo Papa.
This last wine tasting and pairing brought together Marques de Casa Concha, Casillero del Diablo, Gran Reserva Serie Riberas and TRIO, where winemakers Héctor Urzúa and Marcelo Papa spoke with the Master of Senses Massimo Leonori about the 2018 extraordinary vintage, which produced an outstanding quality of red wines like never before seen. The balanced climate conditions along with an excellent grape quality, make this one of the best harvests during recent years and translates to wines with an incredible aromatic explosion and balance.
“It is a unique vintage for the red wines, not just because of the season’s exceptional qualities, but also because it produced wines with a magnificent depth, polished tannins and great strength. The wines show a really good color, mature fruit, rich tannins and good concentration. They have an impressive underlying freshness, but at the same time great character and personality,” explains Marcelo.
To highlight these exceptional conditions, Concha y Toro developed a successful “Extraordinary Vintage” campaign that covers the winery’s Super Premium and Premium lines -Casillero del Diablo, Trio, Gran Reserva Serie Riberas and Marques de Casa Concha- in their 2018 vintages of the red varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
