Zonin to introduce new Chile project at Vinexpo
Italian producer Zonin 1821 is to announce further details of its new Chilean venture at Vinexpo later this month.
The group will be introducing its new ‘Dos Almas’ wines at the show – three ‘Reserva’ wines, three ‘Gran Reservas’ and a sparkling wine.
The three reservas include: a Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca and a Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere from Colchagua, while the gran reservas cover a Pinot Noir from Casablanca and another Cabernet and a red blend from Maipo. The sparkling wine is a blanc de blancs made from Chardonnay.
A family trip to the South American country six years agao apparently provided the inspiration for the venture.
As Zonin’s president, Domenico Zonin, explained: “The name ‘Dos Almas’ – ‘Two Souls’ – perfectly describes the integration of two worlds, which brings Italian winemaking culture and Chilean terroir together in perfect harmony. In Chile high quality wines can be produced combining the rich heritage of the Zonin family’s winemaking expertise with the youthful terroir of Chile.”
Available to taste at stand DE119 throughout the fair, on Monday 19 June guests can experience some live cooking from Chilean chef Cristian Rebolledo who will be whipping up dishes to serve with the wines.
