Belonging to the Campo de Borja DO, the grapes were selected in the cellar and separately vinified.
After completing fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was transferred into 90% French oak and 10% American oak barrels.
Then this wine of the Borsao winery was aged for 10 months.
Finally, it was blended and further aged in the cellar.
Drink until 2020.
Medium-high garnet-coloured robe with a cherry-coloured rim.
Fresh aromas of vanilla, pepper, toast, ripe fruit, plums and liquorice.
Smooth and yummy, with mild tannins and a balanced acidity. Ripe red fruit, menthol, spices and some earthy nuances. Long finish.
