The smoky Flor de Silos is the top model of this quirky beautiful winery from the Ribera del Duero. The Flor de Silos is one of the few wines in Europe that comes from pre-phylloxera vines. It is the original expression of the tempranillo variety coming from a sandy soil of very old vines. The vines are over 100 years old, although their exact age is not known with certainty. It is a wild terrain, very poor in a hidden area. The fruit they give is very scarce and only 5000 bottles of this Flor de Silos are filled. The 100% tempranillo has matured for 18 months in French oak and has ripe black fruit and a full body with lots of tannins and oak-related flavours. It ends with a slight bitterness.
