Gallardia del Itata, Muscat, 2014, Chile – By the Glass
A 100% Muscat from vines planted in 1975. In the glass this 2015 Gallardia del Itata is greenish yellow with intense floral aromas that lead the nose. Notes of lychee, jasmine and lemon are present on the palate. Simply, a very refreshing wine with excellent persistence!
Producer: De Martino
Grape varieties: Muscat
The De Martino family came from Italy in 1934 and settled in Chile in Isla de Maipo (D.O. Maipo). From the beginning they specialised mainly in creating wines from Bordeaux grape varieties. In 1996, the family decided to label and export Chile’s first Carmenere from the renowned vineyard of Alto de Piedras. Today, having reached 80 years of history, the winery combines the experience of the family’s third generation – represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino – with the dynamism and vision of the already incorporated fourth generation, where Marco Antonio and Sebastian De Martino, together with the winemakers Marcelo Retamal and Eduardo Jordan, are leading the winery new projects.
