Itata Tierra Antigua

A Los Viñateros Bravos Volcanico Pais Mission 2021

Like picking up a cute Chilean Chihuahua & finding you have a German Shepard on hand: on opening all disjointed & astringent, like many a 14$ wine is. But behold, several minutes later in glass & the pedigree begins to show: a firm light-medium body, medium + acidity, a tannic structure- think Etna, but meaner (the Shepard)-gorgeous black & dark red fruits, with that volcanic mineral undertow. From old, ungrafted Pais vines. Like really old, pre- phylloxera. A little chill works here too. Pais? Chile? Not your cute pop ‘n pour, just give it that mini decant & ye shall see the light. — 6 months ago

Itata Tierra Antigua

A Los Viñateros Bravos Aglianico Pais 2015

Bought @ Santiago wine club, with the Patagonian flag in background.

- a lively nose of ozone and all that goes with it

Bright, at first, with berry, mint, cherry stones, peach pit.
Light bodied, with good viscosity.
Clay and earth see this wine wrap up with an electrifying epitaph.

Sounds excellent indeed, and made in the style which I like. Something tells me this is not really easy to find.
