Campo de Borja is the self-proclaimed "Garnacha Empire" and rightfully so. It has an intense, dry continental climate with less than 400mm. of rain per year together with the old grarled vines which are more than 30-50 years+ old make an intensely aromatic wine.
30-50 year old bush vines, which are dry-farmed in the higher part of the Ainzon municipality. Calcareous and sandtone soils with reddish shades due to iron content. The grapes were picked by hand during the second week of October.
The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 26o, with a prolonged maceration of two weeks. Afterwards it aged for 7 months in 225L French oak barrels.
