Tasting Cillar De Silos from the Ribera del Duero Region (Episode 41 part 7)

We move to the 2nd red of our tasting session from the Ribera del Duero region, this wine, Cillar De Silos, has had 12 months in the oak and at least 2 years in the winery.

The vines from which this wine is made are grown a little lower in altitude than the Biberius which is one of many influences which contributes to it’s different character.
