Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Purple Angel signifies Montes’ rise to global status. First released in 2005, its popularity put this 100% Chilean owned and operated brand on the international map. It is both bold and approachable, ready now and ageable. Purple Angel is composed of 92% Carmenere, 8% Petit Verdot from the Finca de Apalta and El Arcángel de Marchigüe estate vineyards located in the Colchagua Valley. The soils are of granitic origin, vary in texture, and are notable for the presence of different types of fluvial and glacial stones.

This medium-full bodied wine shows a rich purple in the glass with garnet flections. It is voluminous in the mouth and contains medium tannins and great structure. Fruit-forward aromas are at first plump – blackberry and blueberry – then dense and concentrated – dried plum, cherry preserves and blackcurrant candy. 18 months in French yield toasty notes, nuttiness and sweet spice. The palate follows the dark fruit aromas before leather, cocoa and balsamic emerge. Pair this wine with poultry or absolutely anything revolving around pork fat – lardo, charcuterie, ribs, etc. It would also do well with aged cheese, a creamy risotto or carbonara.
