The Merlot of Veramonte is an appealing, grape varietal red wine from the Chilean wine region Valle de Casablanca.
In the glass, this wine shines in a deep ruby red with garnet red highlights. The expressive bouquet combines intense aromas of fresh blackberries, ripe raspberries with fine hints of currants and a hint of spice. Very fruity, this Chilean red wine convinces the palate.
