DOCosters del Segre
A project in Costers del Segre is something Gran Anyada has been looking forward to for a long time. A DO with viticulture tradition, divided in sub-areas with diversity of lands and climatologies, where wines with strong personalities are elaborated. Matallonga cellar, in the small village of Fulleda, is a great example of familiar operations with a modern project, regenerative for the vineyards and innovative in the cellar. Gran Anyada and Celler Matallonga have joined techniques, commitments and hopes to obtain the product that would dignify our first joint project in Costers del Segre. Try it and see it for yourself!

HOW TO SERVE IT
Serve from 16,5-17ºC..
Decant the wine one hour before serving it. With the bottle at an angle, pour the wine trying to keep the flow slow and steady, then slowly spin it counter-clockwise a couple of times and let it sit until it is ready to drink.
- Wines are always stored horizontally in a cool place where temperatures don’t go above 18ºC.
- It is important to open the bottles or decant them before consumption depending on the type of wine.
- The colour, its intensity and hue, can define the features and characteristics of the wine.
