Availability: In stock
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.
