The grapes come from vines planted in 2000 in Cáceres, a region belonging to the southern Spanish province of Extremadura.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level and are farmed following organic principles. The soils are mainly composed of decomposed slate and have very low levels of organic matter. Climate is Mediterranean with a continental influence.
After a meticulous harvest, the wine was carefully vinified in stainless steel tanks. Then Habla del Silencio 2017 was aged for a period of 6 months in French oak barrels.
The result is a pleasant and highly drinkable wine. Drink until 2021.
The Spanish red wine Habla del Silencio has an intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.
Loads of ripe black fruit, a dash of nutmeg, some mineral and vegetal notions and hints of dry earth. This red wine labelled as VT de Extremadura is surprisingly complex.
Meaty and yummy, this young red wine by Bodegas Habla has a well-defined structure and a fat-free corpulence that coats the palate with notes of liquor-infused fruit, balsam and some mineral undertones. Ripe, round tannins and long, persistent finish.
|Our personal opinion||
An unlikely choice, Habla del Silencio 2017 is nevertheless an excellent one.
