Product Description
Details

A blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah, Vilosell is produced in the southwestern Catalan region of Costers del Segre.

A sort of calling card of the Tomás Cusiné winery, this Spanish red wine is made from vines planted at an altitude of 750 metres above sea level in soils composed of gravel and sand.

Carefully harvested and selected, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Afterwards, Vilosell 2017, the wine with the coloured striped label, was aged in new and 2nd year French oak barrels for over a period of 9 months. Before its bottling, this organic red wine was aged for 3 months in concrete tanks.

Aerate this red wine from Costers del Segre some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Vilosell has a medium garnet-coloured robe with some reddish tinges.

Nose

Quite interesting, this crianza red wine from Costers del Segre begins with some hints of smoke and dry earth, followed by notions of black fruit, spices, cocoa and toast. There is also a touch of red berries and rosy pepper.

Palate

Expansive and velvety-bodied, Vilosell by Tomás Cusiné carries some notes of jammy fruit, sweeter than those encountered on the nose, and a dash of vanilla, moka and cocoa. Dim notions of underbush and garrigue. Good acidity and ripe tannins. Long, gentle finish.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Vilosell 2017 is round, well-balanced and flavourful. This organic red wine pairs wonderfully with dishes such as a Beef and Vegetable Casserole.

This is what some wine critics call an "all-rounder". A wine for working days, as well as for holidays. A wine to drink alone or with you dearest ones. Very good in any case. Review by Maxwell Smart (Posted on 18/01/2018)
