Country: Chile, Colchagua Valley
Tasting Note: Montes Folly is a deep purplish ruby red in color. Aromatically it is very complex and potent without losing elegance. Ripe red and blue berries predominate on the nose with a seductive pastry note. 18 months in new French oak barrels lend interesting notes of coffee, chocolate, and very well-integrated toast that allows the fruit to be perceived in a colossal way. The palate reaffirms the aromatic sensations with light notes of dairy and nutmeg. Well balanced with very round tannins, tremendous structure, and a very long finish.
Montes Folly has consistently been recognized as one of Chile’s finest Syrahs.
Varietal: 100% Syrah
Pairing: Highly recommended with red meats, lamb, veal, and pork chops.
