"Chile has made enormous progress in recent years. At present, this South American country produces wines that can satisfy any consumer's desires, from cheap quaffing wines to world-class age worthy reds."
- Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct. 2008)
Montes Folly is a pure Syrah grown on the very steepest slopes of the winery's "la Finca de Apalta" vineyard, in Apalta Valley, with an inclination exceeding 45°. These high reaches are home to the superb grapes that become Montes Folly, Chile's first ultra-premium Syrah.
Ratings & Reviews
95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This dense red delivers cream-tinged layers of blackberry coulis, cassis and plum sauce backed by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Compact now, with fine spice, smoke and licorice notes gracing the long finish. Syrah. 250 cases imported." – NW (Dec 15, 2012)
