This wine is from the Central Valley in Chile which produces in my opinion excellent affordable red wines. There was a slight hint of tannins in the smooth to drink yet full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon leaving you wanting more and more. Although the label says I should have tasted prunes, chocolate and cassis I also got the flavour of cherries but not over fruity so it compliments food well as there are no competing tastes. An ideal match to a good English Sunday roast and I would readily buy a case.
In 1986 Canepa was apparently the first winery in Chile to install stainless steel tanks for wine production. On the label on the front of the bottle are the words “Vitam Exsolvere per Artes” meaning “The Art releases the souls”. This slogan is Chiavari’s Slogan, native to the town of Genoa where the founder José Canepa Vacarezza was born.
