- A confluence of viticultural heavyweights, Rothschild and Concho y Toro, Almaviva (honoring the Count from the Figaro trilogy) is the name of both the wine and the winery. One wine. That's all they need. Modeled on classic Bordeaux, with Carmenere substituting for Merlot, the grapes are sourced from a 200 acre Puente Alto vineyard and aged for 18 months in new French oak.
