Cillar de Silos
Up in the Northern hill-slopes of D.O. Ribera del Duero, rising out of the valley, the Aragon family have a couple of truly special patches of very gnarled old tempranillo vines, 60 and 80 years' age. Soil is slightly heavier and more minerally than the sandy valley floor, but heavy clay is avoided. These are wines of elegance and concentration; savoury with great earthy perfumes.
