2018 MERLOT, De Martino Estate. Maipo Valley, Chile
"Just as it was in the mid-16th century, the Maipo Valley remains at the heart of the Chilean wine industry. It may only contain a tenth of the country’s 116,830 ha of vines, but it is home to a large percentage of the country’s best-known wineries." - Tim Atkin MW.
De Martino are based in the sub-region of Isla de Maipo.
From the website of their UK agent:
"The De Martino family arrived in Chile from Italy in 1934 and settled in Isla de Maipo. Today, the winery is managed by brothers Sebastian and Marco De Martino who share an ongoing focus in creating wines which represent the family and their origin in the purest way possible".
