Chile has gained a reputation for terrific Bordeaux style reds, somewhere between the elegance of Bordeaux and the ripeness of the New World. Add in an Italian twist too, thanks to the heritage of the Cremaschi Furlotti family. They own an estate in Chile’s Maule Valley, run today by fourth-generation Pablo. The family began making wines in Italy 120 years ago and continued the tradition when they emigrated first to Argentina, then Chile. What we love about their wines is the distinctly Chilean purity of fruit with a nod to the family’s Italian heritage. Pure Merlot, unoaked, this soft, supple red has plum and cherry aromas. Elegant with smooth juicy red fruit and a soft finish, it's a top match with shepherd’s pie or marinaded pork kebabs.
