Tres Picos 2017

Borsao Tres Picos is the flagship of the winery. The best Garnacha of the Campo de Borja area. It was the first "100% Garnacha" wine produced in Spain back in 2000. Grapes are hand picked in 300 kg boxes.

Wine Production

At the winery, a manual cluster selection is sorted. A cold maceration during 1-2 days in steel tank with controlled temperatures 22-30ºC. The wine is aged for 5 to 6 months in new bordelaise barrels of French oak.

Tasting Notes

Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth, it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.

Food Pairing

Barbecue, vegetables, beef and pork. Rice and pasta based dishes. Goes well with cheese and hearty meals, such as Chili, Shepard's Pie, and Lasagna.
