It is a very expressive wine, intense and complex that reminds us of red berries, liquorice, inky and dusty, resembling a Bordeaux style. On the palate it is rich, full bodied, deep with a fine structure and a long lingering finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Petit Verdot.
Two elements form the name «Montelìg»: one is the Spanish word Montes meaning Mountains and the other Lig in the Picunche language meaning Light. The mountains of the Coastal Range and light are characteristic elements of the Aconcagua Valley. The remarkably intense luminosity of the sky in Aconcangua is responsible for the delicacy of the tannins in the grapes. Montelìg is an aristocratic blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon, elegant and with pronounced aromatic expression. Denomination of Origin Panquehue, Aconcagua Valley, Chile. This is a very small sub-appellation of the Aconcagua Valley in Chile and one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas in Chile for the production of red Bordeaux varieties.
Terroir Climate: Panquehue is located between two mountain ranges, Andes Mountains and Coastal Range. It’s very close to the Aconcagua river, which helps to moderate the temperature. This is a dry mediterranean climate with 320 days of clear sky. Very low humidity during the ripening season (> 20%) and cool night temperature (> 15%). Refreshing breeze during the afternoons.
Soil: Deep sedimentary soil; rich in organic material with low density and high porosity and high water retention perfect for Carmenere, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. On the slopes, poor soil and rocky, specially suited to Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vineyard High planting density (5500 vines per hectare), planted in 1998. Vertical shoot system drip irrigation. Yield 6 tons per hectare.
