Montes Folly Syrah

Aurelio Montes’ intuition led him to plant Syrah on the steepest hillsides of our mountainous Apalta property—and that is how the name, Folly, came about. The more traditional winemakers and marketers thought it was sheer madness. Syrah had never been planted in the region, and itwas doubly mad to plant it on such steep hillsides where it was so expensive to clear the land, plant the vines, and tend the grapes. But Aurelio’s genius led them to firmly believe, right from the beginning, that Montes Folly would be the spectacular wine they all dreamed of—the perfect companion for the much-loved Montes Alpha M.

Montes Folly is a deep purplish ruby red in color. Aromatically it is very complex and potent without losing elegance. Ripe red and blue berries predominate on the nose with a seductive pastry note. 18 months in new French oak barrels lend interesting notes of coffee, chocolate, and very well-integrated toast that allows the fruit to be perceived in a colossal way. The palate reaffirms the aromatic sensations with light notes of dairy and nutmeg. Well balanced with very round tannins, tremendous structure, and a very long finish.

Montes Folly has consistently been recognized as one of Chile’s finest Syrahs.
