Features Vilosell Magnum 2008

Vilosell is a red wine from Costers del Segre that year after year gains in personality and character.
It is made of a comprehensive blend which provides it with many shades: 43% Tempranillo, 18% Syrah, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and small percentages of Samso (6%) and Grenache (3%).
The grapes are harvested manually and quickly chilled. The grapes selected undergo a short maceration performed separately according to the variety. Once fermented, the blend is made and the wine is moved into French oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place and where the wine rests for 9 months. This wine was bottled in March 2010 after a light filtration. It stayed in the bottle for some time before being released to the market.

Tasting report Vilosell Magnum 2008

Color

Nice cherry colour with violet edges. Very thin and bright tears.

Nose

Pleasant aromatic complexity. Vilosell 2008 shows a wide range of intense flavours. The notes of herbs, fruits, hot spices and red fruit give way to the hints of liquoriced ripe fruit, sweet spices and cocoa and to the toasted and balsamic notes. Subtle floral background with notes of undergrowth.

Flavour

Intense and wide, voluminous wine with a silky mid palate full of juicy notes of fruit, with a touch of jam, accompanied by toasted and mineral aromas and surprising subtle hints of liquorice. Its tannins are ripe and polished. Good acidity and a long and persistent finish that leaves elegant fruity and toasty aromas.
A round, tasty and very friendly wine.
