Description

Ageing: 12 months in French oak barrels and 6 months in bottles.

Siglo is the most emblematic brand of appellation Rioja. It is elaborated in Bodegas Manzanos, a winery with more than 130 years of winemaking tradition. Siglo is a symbol of Rioja, is one of the few brands that still preserves the traditional burgundy bottle. The range Siglo Sack, stands out as it is worldwide recognised because of the sack that wraps its bottle.

The sack is the most characteristic thing about Siglo and maybe is one of the reasons why our brand has become such an undeniable referent in Rioja. We can all remember “the wine of the sack”.

The sack was born out of the need to keep the wine fresh. And with this principle we continue to elaborate the sack.

Although our wine is elaborated in Rioja, it is transported to nearly a hundred countries around the world and we all want to be sure that the wine arrives as it was conceived, without being altered by any change of temperature during the journey and storage.

The sack protects the wine from the changes of temperature and light, it emulates the ageing process in the winery, where we maintain a constant temperature of 12 degrees Celsius throughout the year and a low light to make sure that the wine sleeps in the dark, as it is best for its perfect evolution.
