90pointsDe Martino 2009 Alto de Piedras Single Vineyard Carmenère (Maipo Valley)

A big, earthy type of wine with a ton of ripeness and heft. Smells like pure black olive, earth and smoked meat. The palate is tight but friendly as it delivers big doses of herb, tea, chocolate and black fruit flavors. About as deep and long in the mouth as this variety gets; proof that Maipo can produce the occasional excellent Carmenère. Michael Schachner
