Reviews of Vilosell 2006
We had it with snacks.
I bought the Tomás Cusiné wine online.
One of the more powerful wines of Costers del Segre.
Intense ruby red, high layer. Sweet smell of caramel. I found it quite light.
Costers del Segre is a good wine area to drink with food.
I bought Vilosell Negre at Uvinum.
Vilosell Negre 2008
Has a strong colour. Vanilla aromas. This Vilosell seemed fairly fresh.
