Denomination of Origin (D.O.)
- Ucúquer Vineyard, D.O. Litueche, Colchagua Valley, banks of the Rapel River.
Constant breezes cool this vineyard, located 170 m above sea level on the southern bank of the Rapel River, near a ravine close to the mouth of the river. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean—just 15 km away—results in tremendous maritime influence. The Chardonnay vines are 50% clone 95 and 50% clones 72; both are vertically positioned.
Granitic with a clay-loam texture. Poor in organic matter with good drainage.
Semi-arid coastal. Influenced by the Rapel River and the Pacific Ocean.
12 months in French oak barrels, and concrete egg.
With a degree in Enology from the Universidad de Chile, Marcio joined Concha y Toro in 1997. From 1998 to 2000 he worked with Enrique Tirado at the Puente Alto winery as assistant winemaker for Don Melchor, and then moved to the Cachapoal winery in the Rapel Valley, where he is now head winemaker.

“The floral aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, and then chamomile, apricots and pears are really enjoyable. Medium to full body, an oily mouthfeel and a textured finish.”
