REGION: Aconcagua, Chile
VARIETIES: Cabernet, Sangiovese
In Situ is a “terroir” project by the family-owned Vina San Esteban winery, meaning they have carefully selected certain plots of land which have large variations between day and night temperatures to enhance balance. Their signature range is unusual, unﬁltered blends of varietals very rarely seen anywhere, except, perhaps, in this case, Tuscany. Cabernet can dominate any blend with its bold fruit ﬂavours, but the Sangiovese does an amazing job here of adding ﬁnesse and other ﬂavours.
