Tomàs Cusiné’s most personal red comes from the oldest vineyards on the Vilosell estate, a small village located in the foothills of the Prades mountains.

Geol (DO Costers del Segre) is the most personal wine of Tomàs Cusiné, a red with character and a strong telluric force from the old vineyards from which it is made.

Much of Geol’s personality comes from the landscape where the estate he comes from is located, a vineyard where the soil was formed in the Paleogene, that is, more than 43 million years ago. This territory is made up of gravels and substrates of earth and rock, as well as clay and silt with intertwined edges and limestones that come from the foothills of the Prades mountains, formations also responsible for the altitude of the vineyard, 712 meters above the sea level.

The vineyard is grown according to the dictates of organic farming, using organic fertilizers made in the cellar and under strict control of the origin of organic matter and cooking temperatures. Biodiversity and the natural vegetation cover of the soil are preserved throughout the estate.

The Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes that make up each Geol vintage are selected grain by grain in a double selection table. The must is fermented in 5000 liter tanks with native mothers, the result of work to identify the vineyard. Aging is carried out in 600 liter French oak barrels.

Geol 2017 has a beautiful deep red color. The nose gives off aromas of soft cedar and eucalyptus wood, notes of chocolate and licorice and balsamic and pastry touches. In the mouth it is silky, wide, with round, powerful and deep tannins.
