Escudo Rojo, a literal Spanish translation of the Rothschild name has its origins in the Maipo Valley, the historic birthplace of fine Chilean wines. Escudo Rojo gets its refinement from French grape varieties and its power from the magnificent terroir. In a constant quest for perfection, the winegrowers select the best vines there to make and blend this exceptional wine.
Escudo Rojo Reserva Carmenere opens on blackberry, then reveals a fine tannic structure lifted by touches of black pepper and mocha notes. Served between 15 and 17 C, it is an ideal accompaniment for meat and cheese.
