Details

This substantial Spanish red wine was crafted by the Costers del Sió winery from grapes coming from 6 different estates belonging to the DO Costers del Segre, in the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees. All of them, interestingly, surrounded by centenary holm oaks.

The 2014 vintage of Alto Siós is made from a blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Grenache.

The grapes were meticulously harvested, destemmed and selected in the cellar. Separately vinified, after a cold-maceration the wine musts were fermented in stainless steel tanks, with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.

Finally, Alto Siós 2014 was transferred into oak barrels of different origins, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months.

Production of 25,000 bottles. Drink this red wine from Costers del Segre through 2024.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Alto Siós has a high cherry-coloured robe with purple tinges and a garnet rim.

Nose

Lively aromas of wild berries, some spicy touches, slight notes of menthol, chocolate and toffee and wet earth remembrances. Complex and nuanced, this Crianza red wine also brings to mind remembrances of flowers and liquorice.

Palate

Gentle, well-balanced and sustained by a tight acidity. This wine produced by Costers del Sió carries a respectable amount of black fruit, some bitter notes and some spicy touches. Tannins are nicely rounded and the aftertaste brings hints of toast and fruit.

Our personal opinion

The wine Alto Siós 2014 brings a good chance to know the DO Costers del Segre, a promising wine region northwest of Barcelona.
