Siglo is a symbol of Rioja. Bodegas Manzanos, a winery with more than 127 years of winemaking tradition is one of the few brands that still preserves the traditional Burgundy bottle. The sack around the bottle was originally to keep the wine cool and would be soaked in water in the summer months. One of the things that defines Bodegas Manzanos is the large area of vineyards that they own in different parts of Rioja. This is why they are able to elaborate a red wine that truly represent Rioja and its varieties of Terroir. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo Garnacha and Graciano and is aged for 36 month in French and American oak with a further aging of 4 to 6 years in bottles
