Viña Borgia Garnacha BIB 3L N/V

This 100% Garnacha wine from the Campo de Borja DO elegantly expresses the characteristics of this varietal. 

Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “Cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards.

About the Vineyard

Garnacha vineyards of 10 to 15 years old planted on a plateau of the Huecha river. Small parcels of the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo Vineyards; variying in altitude from 1,200 to 1,400 feet.

Wine Production

Temperature controlled fermentation at between 22º C  and 25º C in stainless steel tanks, where all the aromas are preserved. Done after a 15 days maceration period.

Tasting Notes

Fresh bright red fruit balanced by a fine structure and ample bouquet. Viña Borgia is made from 100% Grenache and is a fine example of this varietal. This wine is vinified with utmost care and bottled under the strict supervision of the winemaker, José Luis Chueca Sancho.

Food Pairing

Perfect for pasta, pizzas and even hamburgers. Goes well with cheese, and grilled vegetable based dishes.
