Casas del Bosque Gran Reserva Pinot Noir

Juan Cúneo Solari founded Casas del Bosque in 1993, at a time when the Chilean wine industry was pursuing quantity over quality.

Coming from 10-15 year old vines planted in decayed granite hillside soils, located within the coldest and western areas of the Casablanca Valley, this Pinot Noir is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, both new and used.
