Characteristics of Borsao Tres Picos

Borsao Tres Picos is a red wine made by the Borsao winery in Campo de Borja. It was described it as the best value wine in 2014 by Robert Parker.

The Borsao winery began in 1958 as a cooperative of producers from the Campo de Borja. A winery with great experience in the Grenache, the variety which reigns in the Campo de Borja.

Borsao Tres Picos is therefore a varietal Grenache, made with grapes from old vines between 35-60 years old, and planted at an altitude of 600-700 metres. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone, stone soils behind the Moncayo Mountain which regulates hot and cold temperatures. The climate is one of great contrasts. It is very cold in winter with Atlantic influences and the Boreas, a cold wind from the North West. Summers, however, are warm with higher temperatures. There is also a great contrast in temperature between day and night, causing a slow maturation, providing a good acidity and a nice colour to the wine.

To produce this Borsao Tres Picos, the grapes are macerated for 20-25 days before fermentation, which occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 25-30 ° C. This wine is aged for five months in new French oak barrels from Bordeaux.

A good representation of a Grenache of Aragon.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Campo de Borja

    Winery Borsao

    For many years, Aragonese wines were used to strengthen weaker wines, both in Spain and abroad. However, in the past few years Araongese wines have managed to dramatically change this stereotype and their reputation in general. The D.O Somontano region lead this revolution during the 90´s with the cultivation of foreign varieties, but now other wine regions, such as the DO Campo de Borja, have discovered the extraordinary possibilities of one of its native varieties: Grenache, one of the most prominent varieties in Spain. It is not in vain that the DO Campo de Borja is considered "the queen of Grenache".

    In a relatively short time, Bodegas Borsao has gone from being one of the examples of the wine growing stagnation of some Aragonese cooperatives, to being among the best examples of a company with an intelligent renovation. Although Bodegas Borsao, founded in 1958, is still a cooperative with more than 400 members who cultivate and control more than 1,500 hectares of vineyard,the new wines not only brought a breath of fresh air to Campo de Borja, but they also meant a new beginning for many other Aragonese wines: modernity.
