Variety: Grenache and Carignan
The name of this winery is “sileo,” and as such, is a Latin word that means to be still or quiet. This greatly reflects the qualities of the Carthusian monks who traveled from France, planting the original vines in both Priorat and Montsant. This order of monks carry on in silence. The winemaker Agusti also makes his wine with a bit of quiet reverence, and so ‘sileo’ makes its case. Agusti Torelló Roca projects are based in Catalonia in northern Spain. Sileo is his Montsant project with a focus on Grenache and Carignan. His other projects AT Roca and Anima Mundi are based on whites and sparkling.
This is a fairly classic wine of the hilly appellation of Montsant. The vines come from several organically farmed sites that are hand harvested. The wine ages in French oak and steel.
