Hugo Casanova Estate Merlot Reserva 750ml
A ruby red wine with violet hues. Tobacco, chocolate and spice are all there on the nose while the taste is mature and complex with a long finish. As a reserva wine it has spent 10 months ageing in French oak barrels.
Coming from the north of Italy, the first members of the Casanova family arrived in Chile at the end of the XIX century, their purpose was to continue the nobel tradition for producing high quality wine, the same prominent wines they had been growing in Italy for generations. To achieve this goal, Eliseo Casanova acquired the "Batuco" and "Valle Hermoso" farms in the Itata valley where he fulfilled his dreams. Years later, his son Aldo, attracted by the exceptional climate conditions for the vinegrowing in the Maule region, bought the "Purisima Ranch" where he introduced French cepage. In 1976, after Mr. Aldo Casanova Pozza passed away, his son Hugo took charge of the direction of the family company, since then the vineyard has had great sucess with its excellent range of wines.
