Casalibre Mínimo

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 2015 is our first wine, with only 6,070 bottles produced. Minimum is our proposal for an aged wine and it is our only wine aged in French oak barrels.

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.

pairing

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.

Wine

Organic blend of 40% Carmenere, 30% Malbec y 30% Syrah from Los Lingues, Colchagua Valley.

Vineyard

Planted from west to east, with its back to the Andes, on slopes of 5% to 15%. Virtually virgin, stony soils with complex mixtures of Granite, Basalt, and other volcanic stones.
