Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Sileo, produced by the AT Roca winery through its branch Companyia Vitícola Sileo, based in DO Montsant.

A varietal Grenache, this Spanish red wine was sourced from two organically farmed vineyards situated halfway between Falset, Pradell de la Teixeta and Cornudella de Montsant, at roughly 250 metres of altitude.

After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then a fraction of Sileo 2021 was transferred into 500-litre French oak barrels and aged for 10 monts. The rest went through the same process in the steel tanks. Finally, the wine was blended and bottled.

This is an honest, straightforward Montsant red wine.

Pair this Crianza red wine with meat recipes.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Sileo is medium ruby with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Grenache wine smells of cranberries and bilberries, underscored by notes of Mediterranean garrigue, licorice, and a peppery note.

Palate

Fresh and lively, this red wine from 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 2021 makes for a great everyday wine.
