Product Description

This is the new vintage of Succés La Cuca De Llum, produced in the southern Catalan region of Conca De Barberà.

The wine is a single varietal Trepat, an indigenous grape that produces comparatively low-alcoholic, highly characteristic red wines.

Made from 35-year-old vines grown following traditional, environmentally-friendly methods, the grapes of this Spanish red wine produced by the Celler Succés Vinícola winery were harvested by hand and spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Macerated for over a period of 35 days, malolactic fermentation took place in 300 and 500-litre oak barrels.

A remarkably easy-to-drink red wine. That is Succés La Cuca De Llum 2017.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Succés La Cuca de Llum has an intense, bright, medium-low cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.


Clean aromas of red berries, aniseed, white and black pepper, and underbush. This varietal Trepat from Conca de Barberà also suggests some dim mineral undertones and notes of wet earth.


This lively red wine from Succés Vinícola conveys a sensation of lightness and purity. Notes of red fruit, balsam and spices, particulary pepper. Long and linear, with mild, delicious tannins, good acidity and a medium, spicy finish.
