Although the history of the city of Borja takes us back to the beginnings of the Paleolithic period, it wasn’t until the 4th century before Christ, in the heart of the Celtiberian period, when thanks to classical and numismatic written sources the name of this village came to light: Bursao. With the passing through Bursao of different civilizations like the Romans, Visigothic Hispania and the Muslims we have inherited architectural remains and above all, the natural inclination of its people towards agriculture and more particularly viniculture. Of equal importance was the implementation of artisanal techniques that today endure as living proof of the cultural richness of the former Bursao today known as Borja. During the I and II centuries, before our time, it used to mint bronze coins, ases and dividers as a symbol of its autonomy. On the obverse of the as we can see a celtiberian rider armed with a lance, riding on the writing of the name of the city in the native alphabet. The emblem adopted by the winery as a sign of identity. Read less

Borsao Vina Borgia Garnacha 2008: Dieser Wein mit fantastischen Kirschwasser- und Erdbeernoten ist überraschend gut. Geschmacksreiche und klare Fruchtaromen mit mitterem Körper präsentieren sich der Nase. Der Uralt-Weinberg dieses Weines ist 400 Meter hoch gelegen und hat Kalksteinböden, gelagert und ausgebaut in Stahltanks. Vor der Vinificatio werden die Trauben noch einmal selektiert, um sie danach auf der Maische lange zu vergären. Anschließend wird der Wein in neuen Barriques gelagert und unfiltriert und ungeschönt in Weinflaschen abgefüllt.Weingut: BorsaoRegion: AragonienRebsorte: GarnachaInhalt: 0.75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16°CAuszeichnungenParker (Ausg. 166) 87 Pkte.

Bright ruby. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are deepened by notes of licorice, black tea and pungent herbs. Supple in texture, offering sweet red fruit flavors and showing no rough edges. A smoky note comes up with air, adding complexity to a nicely persistent, red berry-dominated finish. Extremely easy to drink, and offering excellent depth and clarity for the money.
