Casalibre Mínimo Red Blend Wine from Viña Casalibre

Reduced to the essential

Mínimo is a conceptual wine, representing our beliefs, philosophy and reason for existence.

From the small area of Los Lingues, at the foot of the Andes Mountains and under the influence of the moon and the stars, it is made with use of natural forces and energies, without the use of synthetic compounds in the field, in balance with the ecosystem.

small production

Minimum was our first wine produced , with a small production and numered bottles, only in the years with the best conditions to be produced. Minimum is our proposal for an organic aged wine and it is the only wine aged in French oak barrels we produce.

tasting notes

On the nose, notes of liqueur of cherries and plums, with a sweet, sweet mouth, with very soft tannins, which fills the palate with well-ripened red fruits and sweet spices. It shows in its tertiary notes the good evolution of the 3 years in the bottle.

Ideal with red meat, preferably grilled, pasta with more structured sauces such as bolognese, mushroom-based risottos, high-quality charcuterie and also with mature cheeses.
