Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Borsao Tres Picos, a varietal Grenache which is widely recognised as one of Spain's absolute top values.

Produced by Bodegas Borsao from vineyards between 35 and 60 years of age, this Spanish red wine belongs to DO Campo de Borja, northwest of the province of Zaragoza, Aragón.

Planted in rocky soils, the grapevines grow at an altitude of 600-700 metres above sea level, subject to a tough Continental climate.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control, this red wine from Campo de Borja was macerated with the skins for several weeks. 

Before its bottling, Borsao Tres Picos 2019 was aged for 5 months in new French oak barrels.

Pair with cured cheeses and stew recipes.

Appearance

The red wine Borsao Tres Picos is medium purple with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Grenache is inviting and expressive. Aromas of ripe red fruit, in all of its variants, combined with some toasted notions and notes of liquorice, aromatic herbs, and even some floral overtones. 

Palate

Fruit-driven and nicely crafted, with hints of red plums and dried blackberries, sustained by a good acidity and nuanced by some herbal touches. The wine has a nice freshness, and tannins are savoury and ripe. This wine of Bodegas Borsao has a medium finish, with an aftertaste of spices and underbrush.

Our personal opinion

Already a modern classic, Borsao Tres Picos 2019 is a smooth, tasty wine good for any occasion. Fabulous value.
