The quality level of Bodegas Borsao is high, you can taste it in this Garnacha. This wine shows all the varietal character of the Garnacha from Campo de Borja. Sourced from small parcels in the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo vineyards, it expresses the essence of Borsao. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century.

It is medium-bodied, refreshing, exuberant and fruity, pure and lusty spiciness and with a complex and long aftertaste.
