Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

De Martino, an ultra-dynamic winery, controls numerous small plots of old vines across Chile's diverse wine regions. Founded in 1934 by Pietro de Martino, who left Italy to pursue his dream on the alluvial soils of the Isla de Maipo near Santiago, the winery found a Mediterranean climate reminiscent of Bordeaux. Today, the fourth generation of the De Martino family, Marco Antonio and Sebastián, spearhead the winery with a focus on revitalizing forgotten vineyards. Their 'Old Vine Project' began with a chance to rescue ancient, ungrafted vines in Maule, Cachapoal, and the Itata Valley. These vines, planted in the mid-20th century in a Spanish bush vine style without trellising, represent a legacy of bio-diverse, organic viticulture. The project uncovers the extraordinary potential of Chile's vinous heritage, turning previously overlooked grapes into distinctive wines and preserving a fascinating piece of the country’s wine history.
