Produced in the Catalan region of Costers del Segre (Lleida), Bru de Verdú Magnum is a Spanish red wine presented in a large format (1,5 litres, equal to 2 regular bottles).
First the grapes were carefully harvested and separately vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and lasted 25 to 40 days.
Transferred into 1st and 2nd year French, American and Hungarian oak barrels, the wine was aged for 8 months. During that period, it was drawn off twice in order to oxygenate it and remove any potential sediment.
Finally, Brú de Verdú 2016 Mágnum was blended and stabilized in stainless steel tanks for 30 days.
Prior to its bottling, this red wine from Costers del Segre was neither clarified nor filtered.
Drink now to 2023.
The red wine Bru de Verdú Mágnum has a bright, attractive, medium-high red-coloured robe with some garnet tinges.
This magnum red wine from Costers del Segre exhibits some yummy aromas of red and black fruit, lively and pristine, alongside notes of spices, cocoa, smoke and some mineral undertones.
Intense and full-bodied, this red wine by Celler Cercavins has a smooth texture, with plenty of fruit - cranberries, blackberries - combined with some spicy and balsamic remembrances and notions of underbrush. Sweet tannins, good acidity and long finish.
