Founded in 1998 by Gonzalo Vial, owner of Chile’s leading fresh food producer, Agrosuper, Viña Ventisquero winery is one of the most modern in Chile yet manages to retain a ‘boutique’ and innovative outlook. Viña Ventisquero is the first vineyard in Latin America to make use of a state-of-the-art integrated Management System which has led to its acquisition of three certifications (ISO9001, ISO14001 and HACCP) relating to human health and the highest quality and strictest environmental policy. It is all of these things that has enabled Vina Ventisquero to combine traditional methods of viticulture with the most up-to-date means of vinification. Vertice is a deep red colour with violet hints and a nose is of red and blue berries, mixed with soft spicy aromas of black pepper, soft spice and a hint of oak. It has soft and silky tannins, a firm structure with balanced acidity and a long finish. This wine holds up to spicy food like Indian, Thai, Mexican, Spanish. It also works well with complex dishes and with wild boar and venison.
"...a truly fabulous wine, smooth, riipe and velvety. And underpriced for the quality" Fiona Beckett, the Guardian, Jan 2013more ↓ less ↑
