Product Description
Details

Crafted by the Tomàs Cusiné winery, Llebre is a Spanish red wine from the Costers del Segre DO, an area located in the southwestern part of Catalonia.

The wine is made from a blend of Ull de llebre (Tempranillo), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Samsó (Carignan) and Syrah coming from vines located at 600 metres of altitude.

After a careful vinification process, during which the grapes were macerated before fermentation, Llebre 2016 was aged for a short period of 4 months in French oak barrels.

An all-rounder red wine from Costers del Segre. 

Drink until 2021.

Nose

This red wine from Costers del Segre is quite rich. Intense aromas of red fruit, along with some aromas of vanilla, spices and balsam. Intensely balsamic background.

Palate

Fresh, somewhat creamy, elegant and fruit-loaded. This red wine by Tomàs Cusiné is full of red berries, toast and spices over a deep liquorice background. Well-balanced acidity, mild tannins and medium, fruity finish.
