Availability: In stock
Produced in the Catalan region of Costers del Segre (Lleida), Bru de Verdú Magnum is a a large format Spanish red wine (1,5 litres, equal to 2 regular bottles).
A blend of Syrah and Ull de Llebre (a.k.a. Tempranillo), the grapes were carefully harvested and separately vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and lasted 20 to 30 days, with pump-overs every 3/4 days.
Transferred into 1st and 2nd year French, American and Hungarian oak barrels, the wine was aged for 6 months. During that period, this wine of the Celler Cercavins winery was drawn off twice in order to oxygenate it and remove any potential sediment.
Finally, Brú de Verdú 2017 Mágnum was blended and stabilized in stainless steel tanks for 30 days.
Prior to bottling, this red wine from Costers del Segre was neither clarified nor filtered.
The red wine Bru de Verdú Mágnum has a bright, attractive, medium-high red-coloured robe with some garnet tinges.
This blend of Ull de Llebre and Syrah in magnum format 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 from 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, gently toasted finish.
