Montes Alpha, the pioneer wine that showed the way to all other Chilean premium wines.
It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche, having proven early on our credibility as a world-class premium wine producer.
All our Alpha wines have received ‘Top Scoring’ and ‘Best Value’ from the influential Wine Spectator magazine: quite an achievement for Chilean wines at this price level.
The nose is complex with varied aromas of ripe black and red fruits such as blackberries, figs, and plums in syrup. Spice notes of black and red pepper intermingle with a touch of fresh tobacco and leather.
This is a well-structured wine with good volume on the palate and smooth, round tannins that make this an ideal wine to enjoy now or over the course of the next 10 years.
