The second largest owner of organic vineyards in Chile, with 740 acres in production, De Martino is stepping up to the plate in other ways as well: the winery is 100% carbon neutral and beginning in 2011 they have stopped purchasing new oak barrels. That year they purchased 140 tinajas, the traditional Chilean clay vessels that resemble amphorae, in varying shapes and sizes. They also invested in 5000L Austrian (Stockinger) foudres and continue to seek out Chilean foudres made from the indigenous oak known locally as "raulí." Though their Maipo Valley "classic" bottlings are made in more robust quantities and are not quite as individualistic as the higher end, they still represent good typicity and excellent value. This Cab shows generous dark fruits, with a balanced mouth feel and overall, a feel of plump yet bright and honest fruit. Cab done right!
