Product Description
Details

This substantial Spanish red wine was crafted by the Costers del Sió winery from 6 different vineyards scattered across the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees, in DO Costers del Segre.

The 2017 vintage of Alto Siós is made from a blend of, in order of prominence, Syrah, Tempranillo and Grenache.

The grapes were meticulously harvested, destemmed and selected in the cellar. Separately vinified, after a cold-maceration this red wine from Costers del Segre was fermented in stainless steel tanks, with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.

Finally, Alto Siós 2017 was transferred into oak barrels of different origins, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months.

Production around 15,000 bottles.

Aerate 20 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Alto Siós is medium ruby with purple tinges.

Nose

Lively aromas of wild berries, with some spicy touches and notes of menthol, chocolate, and wet earth. Complex and nuanced, this blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Grenache also suggests a note of flowers and licorice.

Palate

Gentle, well-balanced and sustained by a tight acidity. This wine from Costers del Sió carries a respectable amount of black fruit, some bitter notes and some spicy touches. Tannins are nicely rounded, and the aftertaste is long and slightly toasted.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Alto Siós 2017 is a truly excellent value from DO Costers del Segre, a promising wine region northwest of Barcelona.
