     “Dark berries, white pepper, vanilla and a suggestion of musky underbrush on the nose. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering ripe, dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes smooth and gently sweet, with lingering spiciness and rounded tannins contributing shape and grip to the nicely persistent finish."

  • In 2003, Tomàs Cusiné decided to embark on a new wine producing project; one into which he could put all of his passion and knowledge for producing the finest wines. His extensive experience in the DO (with Castell de Remei) enables Tomàs to create wines of the highest character and elegance, marking the beginning of a project with great hopes and ambitions His aim, as always, was to elaborate wines full of character that were capable of fully reflecting the characteristics of the soils from which they were produced. He also wished to take up the challenge of producing wines that reflected his personal wine-making philosophy.
