In its collection of Super Premium wines, Casillero del Diablo captured the best of selected Chilean valleys. Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of years of research and hard work. The secret of this exclusive creation lies in the process of working with grapes carefully chosen from specific zones offering a unique contribution to the wine.TASTING NOTES
The Maipo Valley's generous climate with hot days and cold nights encourages the tannins to ripen fully while conserving the color and aromas in the grapes.
Our vineyards in the Maipo Valley have reached the ideal balance needed to deliver extraordinary quality year after year.
Ruby red colour with violet hues.
The flavours that typify a Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo Valley are clearly present in the beginning, such as the fresh cassis, plums and certain cherry flavors. The barrel notes are elegantly expressed with the coffee and graphite. All of these are perfectly integrated and balanced.
The presence of the fruit is remarkable thanks to the lively acidity, allowing notes of blackberries, cassis and figs to flourish. The tannins are strong but thanks to the barrel aging they end being round and long. The end palate is complex with flavors of the barrels like brown sugar and spices.
This wine is versatile for food paring. From different cuts of red meat, to lamb, goat, duck and veal. Meat with a good quantity of fat/grease is recommended due to the high presence of tannins that harmonize perfectly with the composition of the meat (fat/grease and proteins). Mature cheeses are equally recommended above all if they are used in sauces.
