Carigno de Maule is a Carignan grown in the Cauquenes neighbourhood of the dry inland area of the Maule Valley known as the Secano Interior. This Guzmán family vineyard is located 35 kilometres from the coast. The soils are granitic with a high presence of quartz. The vines are ungrafted, 75 years old, dry-farmed and bush-trained. 

This terroir truly brings out the very best of this variety. The grapes for this vintage were harvested on 25 March, when they had reached optimal phenolic ripeness.

This wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks. The grapes were destemmed and selected, and some of the grapes were slightly crushed in order to gently release their juice. Then they underwent a three-day cold maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation, which was carried out with native yeasts from the vineyard. Gentle pump-overs were carried out to homogenize the contents of the tank. Temperatures were controlled to ensure they did not exceed 24°C-25°C (75°F-77°F). Once alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wine was left in contact with the skins and seeds for an additional eight days. The wine was racked off and the solids were pressed. The press wine was blended with the free-run wine. The wine was then racked into fifth-use 225-litre French oak barrels, where it aged for a total of 20 months.
