Joven de Silos
This is a young wine which revitalized old Ribera del Duero traditions when in the 80´s we made a wine without any oak ageing yet with high quality grapes. It is dark cherry red with violet hues and elegant aromas of red fruits and ripe fruits of the forest, with mineral and violet floral tones and a youthful edge. On the palate, it´s fruity, meaty yet silky with pleasant tannins.
A long lingering intense yet fine wine, due to its refreshing acidity.
