Siglo Saco produced by Bodega Manzanos is very well known among wine lovers. It is the classic Rioja wine, the sack is the most characteristic thing about Siglo. The sack was born out of the need to keep the wine fresh.
This wines is 100% Tempranillo and has intense cherry red colour with high robe and garnet rim, medium high intensity which stands out for its red and black fruit in perfect harmony with the spices, eucalyptus and elegant toasted aromas from the ageing in barrel. This wine is fresh, round, elegant with very ripe tannins. Long aftertaste reminiscent of the red and black fruit.
Siglo is a symbol of Rioja. Siglo Saco is undoubtedly the most famous wine in the Siglo portfolio. Bodegas Manzanos is a winery with more than 127 years of winemaking tradition and is one of the few brands that still preserves the traditional Burgundy bottle. 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 100% tempranillo and is aged for 12 month in French and American oak with a further aging of 6 month in bottles. The sack is handmade by ASPRODEMA, an association of adults with learning disability.
Perfect match for a roast chicken or Lasagne and tomato based Mediterranean dishes.
