The Marques del Silvo Gran Reserva is a powerful, complex, and elegant expression of Tempranillo. The grapes for this Gran Reserva are sourced from the estate's best vineyards, from vines at least seventy years old. The real gem of Marques del Silvo is the vineyard, with 150 hectares of vineyards cultivated at an altitude between 560 m and 700 m. The soils are clayey-calcareous, deep and draining, and very poor in organic matter all contributing to the growth of the best quality grapes.
Thirty months of aging in French and American oak and extended aging in bottle before release provide the perfect counterpoint to the lush fruit. The 2015 is a beautifully elegant red. With this vintage, the decision was made to age the wine in a more significant percentage of French oak. Backing off a tad on the American oak allowed the gorgeous old-vine fruit to shine in its full glory!
In your glass, notes of blackberries, red licorice, and roasted herbs introduce the silky, concentrated fruit. Flavors of black cherry, blackberry, balsamic, dusty cocoa, and savory herbs treat the palate through the long, spicy finish.
