Head Winemaker Felipe Tosso joined Vina Ventisquero in 2000. After seriously considering alternate careers as a tennis pro and classical guitarist, he elected to enter the wine business, describing it as “one of my big passions because it’s more than work – it’s a lifestyle.”Tosso’s winemaking travels have taken him to Napa, Sonoma, Argentina, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, back to Concha Y Toro in Chile and then finally to Vina Ventisquero. In 2003, Felipe began a close collaboration with John Duval in the production of icon wines Pangea and Vertice, a partnership which continues to this day.
This wine is deep ruby in colour.
Expressive nose with red fruit like plums and soft black fruit, like cherries, together with white floral notes contributed by the Muscat.
This delicate-bodied wine is fresh, with good acidity and smooth tannins that contribute a silkiness to the mouth. Persistent in the finish, with the red fruit and flowers again apparent.
