Über die Bodega De Martino

Bereits 1934 wurde De Martino im Maule Valley Chiles gegründet und zählt seitdem zu einem der herausragenden Weingüter Südamerikas. 1934 kam Pietro De Martino aus Italien nach Chile, fest entschlossen, einen so einzigartigen Ort wie den Wein zu finden, von dem er träumte, ihn zu produzieren. Das Maule Valley mit seinen felsigen Böden und dem mediterranen Klima bot die perfekten Bedingungen, um klassische Weine in einem frischen und eleganten Stil herzustellen.


Heute, mit mehr als 80 Jahren Geschichte, vereint das Weingut die Erfahrung der dritten Familiengeneration – vertreten durch Pietro, Marco und Remo De Martino – mit der Dynamik und Vision der vierten Generation, bestehend aus Marco Antonio und Sebastián De Martino, der zusammen mit dem Önologen Nicolás Pérez die Projekte des Kellers leitet.

Über den Wein Vigno Old Vines 2018

Der Vigno ist Jahr zu Jahr einer der größten Weine Chiles und unzweifelhaft der beste Carignan der Welt. Er ist ein Carignan aus einem alten, 4,5 Hektar großen Weinberg, der 1955 gepflanzt wurde. Es ist ein komplexer Wein mit großem Alterungspotenzial, der alle Versprechen dieser klassischen Sorte aus Maule zeigt. Der Vigno gehört zu den Weinen der Vignadores de Carignan, einer Vereinigung von Erzeugern, die diese traditionelle Rebsorte fördern möchte. Er ist ein Cuvee aus 85 % Carignan und 15 % anderen Sorten (Malbec, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon und Carmenere).


Im Wine Advocate #256 vergab Parker's Verkoster für südamerikanischen Wein Luis Gutiérrez die Weltklassenote von:

98/100 Punkte

Der Wortlaut der Lobeshymne lautet:

The Vigno Single Vineyard is a field blend from an un-grafted, dry-farmed, head-pruned old vineyard called La Aguada in Sauzal, in the coastal mountain range in Maule, one of the closest Carignan plots to the Pacific Ocean in the region, which was planted with a mixture of approximately 90% Carignan and 10% other red varieties (Pais, Carmenere, Cinsault and Malbec) in 1955. It has a beautiful perfumed nose with elegant yet rustic touches of cured meats, tree bark, a touch of smoke, ripe cherries and subtle sweet spices with very good acidity, good tension, and delineated pure flavors. A yummy, supple, meaty, delicious bottle of wine, very drinkable and food-friendly. It’s drinking well now, but it should also age well. This is simply superb, elegant, fresh, balanced, a great expression of Carignan and the Maule. At this quality level this is a real bargain. Super!


The 2018 Vigno is somewhat more austere and powerful, with more tannin and depth than the 2017 I tasted next to it. It's very complete and has all the ingredients for a long development in bottle. It's a wine with power and balance, but it's a little backward; the 2017 is more expressive and open, more drinkable now. But this will be a long-distance runner and more complete. 6,828 bottles were filled in October 2019.


A revolution has been going on at De Martino since the 2011 vintage. You might as well forget what they were doing before; you can consider them born again or a completely new winery. They are an old family operation whose current motto is “Reinventing Chile,” and a lot of what they are doing is not “inventing” anything, but rather looking back at reliable old traditions, unearthing old dry-farmed vineyards planted in the past, and producing wines that reflect their origin, without any makeup. At the end of 2011, they decided to stop buying new barrels and only manage and reuse the ones they own. They purchased large (5,000-liter) oval-shaped oak foudres from Austria, and use them to age all their single vineyard wines. They also bought old tinajas (140 of them), terracotta amphorae, most of them over 100 years old, for a new line of wines. They produce a total of 1.5 million bottles and cultivate 270 hectares of vineyards (all of them un-grafted). They also source grapes from small producers as they produce wines from all over Chile. They do not use external yeast or any other products in their wines. They harvest early and do not wait for phenol ripeness, because they want vibrant wines, harvesting instead when the skin is ready. The magic word is balance. None of their wines are above 14% alcohol. The local market is reacting well to theis new direction, and the company is now even selling small quantities in Spain, which is virtually unheard of for wines from South America. When I first met with winemaker Marcelo Retamal and Sebastian De Martino in Madrid while they were in Europe, they told me they love food and want to produce wines that go with food. I didn’t know what to expect but was blown away by the single-vineyard line-up, all different and showing strong personalities. I subsequently visited Retamal and De Martino in their winery in Isla de Maipo, where I could complement what I had tasted and had the chance to listen to the team and learn and understand what they are doing. Head winemaker Marcelo Retamal travels with his team to the main wine regions of the world once a year for about a month. They’ve been doing that for more than a decade and it certainly pays off. Seeing what others do, knowing the wines, the regions and the greatest wines in the world helps you not only to understand where you are, but also to understand your own terroirs, to question what is done in your region because someone made that decision long time ago; it opens your mind and helps you improve your wines. You can hardly produce great wine if you don’t know (and drink and understand) great wines. That is something that Retamal has done very well, and he deserves all the recognition. De Martino is now one of the leading producers in Chile with a very exciting line of wines, all of them highly recommended from 2011 on.
