Since the first vintage of Calicanto in 2007, this red blend from the Andetelmo Estate has offered a fresh and fruity character with spicy notes and silky, polished tannins.
Calicanto is named after the first bridge built over the Mapocho River in Santiago, constructed between 1767 and 1782. The bridge later incorporated stalls for shops and became one of the earliest locations for the Chilean wine trade. Calicanto therefore symbolizes the bridge between tradition and modernity and our aim to craft wines that express the soul of the Chilean terroir through the finest quality of wines made from French varieties.
