Eduardo Brethauer is a journalist, writer and traveler. Author of the hilarious wine guide Vinos con Cuento. Owner and Wine Editor of Vitis Magazine. Member of the Circle of Wine Writers, La Commenda Major de Rosselló and Círculo de Cronistas Gastronómicos y de Vino de Chile. Founder of Vignadores de Carignan, a unique association of producers that reinvented a viticultural tradition of 5 centuries in Maule Valley. He doesn’t believe in scores. “They’re fuckin’ stupid”, claims. He and his brilliant collaborators are always seeking for character and identity. Their goal is to rescue and put in value wines, spirits and food treasures from forgotten corners of the world.
The terracotta jars are really old. Of different sizes and shapes, they were transplanted from the southern and shaken (be aware of the earthquakes) drylands to their winery in Isla de Maipo. In these containers, De Martino elaborates this Cinsault from Itata that provokes spasms due to its weight and depth of flavors. Notes of copihue (Chilean national flower), wild strawberry and cured ham. Distinguished and velvety. The best version I've tried and I'll try. Perhaps.
