Siglo Tempranillo Riojo 2018
James Suckling: "Beautiful cherry and floral aromas here that follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a berry and light vanilla aftertaste. Drink now." Jul 2019
Winery: "Siglo is the most emblematic brand of appellation Rioja. It is elaborated in Bodegas Manzanos, a winery with more than 127 years of winemaking tradition. Siglo is a symbol of Rioja, is one of the few brands that still preserves the traditional burgundy bottle. The range Siglo Sack stands out as it is worldwide recognized because of the sack that wraps its bottle. The sack is handmade by ASPRODEMA, an association of adults with learning disabilities.
The sack protects the wine from the changes of temperature and light, it emulates the aging process in the winery, where we maintain a constant temperature of 12 degrees Celsius throughout the year and a low light to make sure that the wine sleeps in the dark, as it is best for its perfect evolution.
Aroma: Medium-high intensity and stands out for its red and black fruit in perfect harmony with the spices, eucalyptus and elegant toasted from the oak barrel. Taste: Fresh, round, elegant with very ripe tannins. Long aftertaste reminiscent of the red and black fruit."
