Elegant and fleshy wine. Deep red picota. Ripe black fruit, cherry and blackcurrant, with a hints of flowers. Fine spices, cedar, clove, toffee, chocolate and tobacco leaf. Mineral and balsamic notes. Powerful, elegant, silky and very persistent.
All sparkling wine lovers know the Gran Reserva -in our case with 45 months ageing on lees- as a cava that expresses a unique aromatic complexity, with powerful aromas of nuts and a stunning tropical fruit background.
To speak of Silvanus is to speak of one of the most special “crianza” of Ribera del Duero, for much of the criticism is considered as a wine of author.
