Product Description
Details

This is the only Spanish red wine produced by the AT Roca winery, known for its quality sparkling wines.

From the heart of Montsant, Sileo is made from a traditional blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan (Samsó). The grapes come from two plots located in the Almós Mountains, farmed following environmentally friendly procedures.

After a meticulous harvest, the grapes of this red wine from Montsant were fermented and subsequently aged on lees in 500-litre French oak barrels for a period of 8 months.

The wine Sileo 2018 is an honest expression of the Montsant terroir.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Sileo has a clean, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This blend of Grenache and Carignan smells of cranberries and bilberries, underscored by notes of Mediterranean garrigue, liquorice and a peppery note.

Palate

Fresh and bold, this red wine by AT Roca has some smooth, ripe tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Subtle remembrances of wild berries, fine wood, smoke underbrush and spices. Long finish with dim mineral undertones.

Our personal opinion

An honest, well-crafted Montsant, Sileo 2018 makes for a great everyday wine.
