South America’s best wine

Appreciating good-quality wine, with unparalleled flavor and aroma, is a unique experience, no matter the moment. It’s not by chance that most of us are in love with wine. We can in fact observe that it’s a practice which comes a long way, making the drink one of the world’s most widely consumed.

Here in Bella Club, we appreciate a good wine talk. We have inclusively published several articles regarding the theme: the passion on the aromas, the correct bottle storage, specific qualities and others. Now it’s about time we talked about a guide called “Descorchados”, released by the Chilean expert Patricio Tapia, reaching its 20th edition with over 3.000 wine types considered.

When the guide started, Tapia used to analyze only local labels, and little by little he started incorporating international ones to his portfolio, such as the ones produced in Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil.

In this year’s edition, published by the Inner Group, he even analyzed the rare Orange Wine, a style still unknown for many consumers. It’s nothing but a white wine fermented as a red wine. And it was specially due to that the it got the highest score among the country’s production.

With 1.200 pages, the guide is about to become much more than that. Its content has transformed into a real encyclopedia, listing the four country’s best wine of all. As a comparison, the famous Pocket Wine Book, by Hugh Johnson, which considers wine from all over the world, has 338 pages in its 2018 version.

Anyway, shall we go to what really matters?! Here is the list of the best wine according to this splendid guide:
