Product Description
Details

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

The 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 2019, 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 underground concrete diposits.

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

Appearance

The red wine Vilosell is deep ruby with some reddish tinges.

Nose

Quite interesting, this blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah 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

Winemaker Tomás Cusiné has done a nice job here. Jammy fruit with a dash of vanilla, moka and cocoa, underpinned by underbush and garrigue. Good acidity, ripe tannins and a fresh, medium-long finish.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Vilosell 2019 is round, well-balanced and flavourful. This organic red wine will nicely match 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.
