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 9 months.

Drink Sileo 2017 until 2022.

 

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 2017 makes for a great everyday wine.
