About This Wine...
Smooth complexity with soft tannins. Smocked, pungent aromas of black and blue fruits and dark chocolate, with a peppery overtone. Plush and appealingly sweet, offering spicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a hint of mocha. Finishes with a good breadth and length, leaving a smoke note behind.
Drink between 16 and 18 ºC

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.
