Ruby-purple in colour with aromas of dark berry fruits. The palate is supple, elegant, mineral-laced palate.
In the 1990’s Marchese Piero Antinori discovered the Haras de Pirque estate, a property then owned by the Matte family. In 2001, he started a joint venture with them to create Albis, the winery’s flagship wine, and helped to enhanced the quality of the estate-grown fruit through sustainable and organic vineyard practices. In 2017, the Antinori family acquired the whole property, determined to fully invest in this exciting new journey.
2016 was the first vintage of Galantas, a blend of 85% Cabernet Franc and 15% Carmenère. The wine, fermented with natural yeasts and aged for 14 months in French oak, set out to represent the full expression of Cabernet Franc in the Maipo Valley. Galantas 2018 features a nose featuring notes of dark berry fruit, among which blueberries and blackberries. The palate is supple, ample, persistent, and characterised by pleasant tannins. A wine capable of demonstrating all of the character of the Maipo Valley.
