Sena 2017 Aconcagua Valley, 750ml
Seña is a single-estate, single-wine operation in the Aconcagua Valley, founded in 1995 by Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick of Errazuriz. It was one of Chile's first icon wines and is benchmarked against the greatest wines of Bordeaux and the top Super Tuscans, often winning top spots in blind tastings.
Sena means "signature" in Spanish, and the name can be said to represent the winemaking style and experience shared between the two families. The signatures of the two winery owners can be seen on the wine label, and Sena can be described as the crystallization of the two people's commitment to making top-quality wines. Sena was famous for beating top wines from France and Italy at Tasting in Berlin in 2004, breaking the world's impression of Chilean wine and laying the foundation for the rise of Chile wine.
Each vintage of Sena has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the quality is excellent and stable. The aromas of blackberries, cedar, sandalwood and black tea are compelling. Black olives. Rosemary and sage undertones. Full-bodied, impressive and powerful tannins, yet harmony and balance. Fruit-forward. Lightly chewy. Fresh and energetic wine
