It is a Cabernet Sauvignon with a percentage of Cabernet Franc, which the winemaker from the Aurelio Montes Jr. winery stands out as a Petit Montes Alpha M, the first great icon wine of the house.To make this new edition, the grapes come from the Apalta and Marchigüe valleys and the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak (80% of first use, 20% of second use).
Montes Alpha is a cult Chilean wine, an ambassador for Chile, which has already become a legend.
Aurelio Montes, founding partner of Viña Montes, highlights this. “The first harvest of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon (1987) was the first premium wine in Chile. And all its specimens have been evaluated with Top Scoring and Best Value in the Wine Spectator magazine, a true achievement for our wines”.

The Grape
The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.
