AGE was founded in 1881 as the union of three very old family wineries with longstanding reputations. AGE's wines are produced from 600 hectares of vineyards in Rioja Alta, where the Tempranillo grape shows its full aromatic and taste characteristics. AGE's traditional winemaking methods have made Siglo an emblematic brand. Siglo was the first Rioja to be exported to America in the early 1900's. Its famous burlap was initially used to protect the bottle against breakage and temperature changes. Today, the burlap (saco) still serves its purpose and continues being placed by hand at the bottling line in collaboration with a local non-profit association dedicated to finding employment for developmentally-challenged adults. (importer notes)
The 2015 Bodegas AGE Siglo Saco Rioja Crianza is medium-to-full-bodied, with blackberry and black cherry fruit characters laced with cedar, vanilla, spice box, and tobacco. Silky smooth on the mid-palate, it finishes long, with balancing acidity.
89 points, Wine Spectator
"Floral, smoky and anise notes frame the core of cherry, forest floor and tar flavors in this lithe red. Light, firm tannins and balsamic acidity keep this grounded in a savory character. Drink now through 2028. 15,000 cases made." (10/15/18)
