From: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: While the nose is mostly made up of ripe berry aromas, there's a note of grilled meat that is appealing. On the palate, this is solid and fresh, but tannic. Lightly herbal black plum, cherry, and berry flavors are bolstered by a grip of tannins on the finish.
Winemaker Rodrigo Romero oversees the production of an exciting line of small production wines made for everyday drinking but yet far more interesting and distinctive than most in its category. Calcu, which means “healing doctor” in the local Mapuche language, was created to emphasize the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The fruit is always a combination of the family’s estate fruit, and locally sourced, sustainable grapes from quality Colchagua growers.
Like the playful bull on the label by the talented young Chilean artist who painted him, Calcu produces exuberant wines that are fresh and fruity, but also elegant. Calcu produces six different varietals: Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenére, Malbec and a dry Rosé.
