Description: Casa del Toqui winery was established in 1994 as a partnership between a family of wine growers in Chile and Chateau Larose Trintaudon from France. Sergio Correa from the successful Undurraga Estate is the consulting winemaker.
Intense deep purple color. Aromas of potpourri, blackberries, and lavender. The palate is juicy, spicy, and full-bodied. Layers of blackberries, vanilla-cream, terroir, and junipers come to mind.
The wine definitely over delivers in quality/price ratio.
