VINOUS awards outstanding scores to De Martino WinesMaximiliano Arce
Great scores obtained by our De Martino Wines from the specialized medium VINOUS, particularly by the prestigious critic Joaquín Hidalgo, who visited the winery and tasted them in February of this year.
94 points was the maximum score obtained by two of our wines: Viejas Tinajas Tinto 2021, describing it as “delicate on the palate, with moderate and refreshing freshness; a red with character that leaves the palate thirsty for more wine” and Las Olvidadas 2020, as a “wine that catches, astringent, but comforting supported by a good freshness that enlivens the palate and enhances the juice; a wine that quenches thirst”.
The list of scores and reviews is as follows:
