Borsao is the benchmark for premium Spanish Garnacha. They have certainly been the pioneer of this variety with the firm conviction that the Garnacha is particularly suitable for the Aragon region. Garnacha is experiencing a huge revival worldwide thanks to its fruit-driven character, soft tannins and pleasant mouthfeel, making it a perfect match for a wide variety of meals.

Garnacha originated in Aragón, where Borja is located, and it owes its development throughout Europe to the strength of the Kingdom of Aragon, whose expansion made Garnacha well-established in the Rhone Valley in the 19th century, Italy and Sardinia.

Garnacha is the most widely planted red variety in the world. Other names for Garnacha; Alicante, Aragones, Cannonau, Garnaccho Negro, Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Roja, Garnacha Tinta, Grenache, Tintilla, Toledana, Uva di Spagna.

The Tres Picos has been regularly voted Best Value Wine by Robert Parker so the demand is always high for this highly sought after wine. The Tres Picos is made from Garnacha grapes harvested from very old vines (60 years). The vineyards are fairly cool at about 650 meters altitude in Campo de Borja, south of the Rioja. Partly because of this, the grapes ripen slowly and gradually. An important condition for the production of complex and high quality wines. After fermentation follows a short maturation in small oak barrels.

In taste, the Tres Picos is certainly the equal of a complex Châteuneuf-du-Pape, which is also mainly made from Grenache grapes. In price, the Tres Picos easily wins! Described by Parker as the flagship of Borsao. It is a full, firm, pleasant 100% Garnacha wine. Ripe red and black fruits, minerals, earthy notes, a hint of vanilla and intense aromas of red berries and black cherry with floral nuances. On the palate the Tres Picos is full bodied, very rich and nicely structured with pleasant fine grained tannins with a fleshy and intense taste
