Montes Purple Angel 2012, Colchagua

Country: Chile

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 2

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

Purple Angel relaxes in your glass. It should. It’s spent months listening to Gregorian Chant as it matured slowly in barrels. The vibrant, redcurrant-scented fruit comes from the Carmenere grape. The addition of Petit Verdot gives the wine spice, colour, structure and acidity. Deep ruby red in colour, the wine has alluring red and blackberry notes on the nose. The palate is densely concentrated with spice, chocolate and mocha which linger on the finish. Here grown in Feng Shui-oriented vineyards in one of Chile’s finest regions. A sublime match for middle-eastern spiced lamb.
