Head Winemaker Felipe Tosso joined Vina Ventisquero in 2000. After seriously considering alternate careers as a tennis pro and classical guitarist, he elected to enter the wine business, describing it as “one of my big passions because it’s more than work – it’s a lifestyle”.
Tosso’s winemaking travels have taken him to Napa, Sonoma, Argentina, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, back to Concha Y Toro in Chile and then finally to Vina Ventisquero. In 2003, Felipe began a close collaboration with John Duval in the production of icon wines Pangea and Vertice, a partnership which continues to this day.

The nose is very intense, displaying fresh red fruit, such as raspberries and blackcurrants. There are also some earthy notes and a touch of black pepper. The palate is very expressive.
This is a medium-bodied, refreshing wine, thanks to its fresh acidity. Packed with fruit, such as cherries and strawberries, it has gentle tannins and with long finish.
This wine pairs well with sausages, cold cuts, Serrano ham, lamb and pork. It is also delicious enjoyed on it’s own outdoors.
