Description

100% Tempranillo, aged for 13 months in French Oak.

The Cillar de Silos Crianza is the backbone of the winery as it reflects the character of the Tempranillo variety in Quintana del Pidio. Sourced from different terroirs of small plots, some of which are tiny with very old vines. The wine is a dark cherry red with violet hues. An elegant yet mature nose with black and acidic red fruits (raspberries and ripe fruits of the forest), sweet spices (nutmeg, clove and vanilla), cedar and light roasted wood aromas intertwined with liquorice. On the palate, it is fleshy, silky with a well structured balance. A refreshing acidity gives the wine a long length with mature tannins, which in time will become smoother. A long lingering wine with matching flavours and aromas which come together with a perfect finesse.
