About This Wine...
Elegant power and silky tannins. Deep red cherry colour with forest fruits like blackberry and plum compote. Cedar, eucalyptus, black chocolate, balsamic, pastry, liquorice and black currants with elegant and sweet wood on the nose. A wide and silky entrance, with rounded tannins, powerful, deep and persistent aftertaste in the mouth.
Merlot planted in 1996 and some Cabernet Sauvignon in 1989, the rest of the vines planted in 2004. The soil is quite,
stony, calcareous, and franc-clay. Hand harvested and stored in refrigerated container, cooled down to 9 degrees
before going through the selection table. Fermentation at 22-26°C. Malolactic and “bâtonnage” in barrels and
fourteen-month ageing in new French oak barrels.
Situated high in the mountains of Catalonia, Costers del Segre once had a proud tradition of producing wine. In recent years, Tomàs Cusiné has been behind virtually every new project in the region. In 2003 he finally decided to produce his own wine in the village of El Vilosell. He has planted a huge range of grape varieties, both local and international and has already won great acclaim for his complex, seductive wines.
