Cellar up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant an hour before serving.

After gaining extensive knowledge of the world of wine over the years, in 1987, Aurelio Montes and his partner Douglas Murray finally decided to vinify their own high quality wines in Chile. In 1988 the other two partners (Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand) joined and together they founded Discover Wine Ltda, which later became the world-famous Winery Viña Montes.

Montes Alpha M is definitely one of the largest reds in Chile and South America. It is incredibly elegant and refined, reminiscent of a great Bordeaux wine. The grapes are grown in the Viñedo Apalta, in the Santa Cruz area, in the Central Valley region. This microregion of Apalta is considered, today, the best in Chile for red wines. The finished wine is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.

In the glass, this intense wine shines with a bright intense red color. The bouquet is wonderfully balanced, elegant, and harmonious. The nose releases powerful aromas of juicy cherries and ripe black currant supported by floral accents (especially violets) and spicy notes of vanilla, bourbon, cinnamon. On the palate, it has a structured and full-bodied style supported by lush fruity notes of berries, cassis, and spices. The finish is accompanied by ripe, velvety, and dense tannins. Enjoy this excellent Chilean red wine with stuffed roast duck, roast turkey or grilled beef steaks with braised vegetables.
