The flagship wine from the Don Maximiano Estate it is complex with beautifully ripe fruit, smooth tannins, great concentration and a long finish.
A deep reddish-violet colour, our Don Maximiano 2011 features red fruit aromas of cherries and strawberries, along with notes of cassis, plums and figs.
Its fruity character is enveloped by emerging aromas that recall cloves, cinnamon, and liquorice along with a hint of toasted chestnut.
Good amplitude and great depth result in a balanced wine with fine-grained tannins.
The palate recalls the fruit aromas perceived on the nose, accompanied by notes of cocoa and coffee, and touches of pencil lead and truffle.
The acidity lends a juicy mouthfeel that gives way to a lingering finish with excellent persistence.
Overall, it is a wine with tremendous complexity and elegance that presages a very favourable evolution in the bottle.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec.
