Item Description
The wines of Alto Moncayo are crafted to express the unique terroir of windswept high elevation Campo de Borja DO; and to serve as a benchmark for world class Old Vine Garnacha. The brand's flagship wine comes from vines that are 40 to 70 years old.

This wine has been rated twice 100 points as it truly represents the essence of the Garnacha from Aragón.

About the Vineyard
Vineyards in Tabuenca and Borja, planted with indegenous clones of Garnacha starting in the 1920s.

Wine Production
The selected highest quality grapes are placed into small stainless-steel tanks. The must is basket pressed and fermentation is finished in new French and American oak where it complets the malolactic fermentation. Wine is aged in the barrels for 20 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: Opaque red-black. Scarlet rim. Aroma: Initially closed. The wine opens to an amalgam of minerals and unctuous super-ripe berries. Palate: Deep, rich and ripe. Black fruits (cherries, plums) give way to hints of liquorice, molasses and a hint of cinnamon. Solid tannins and focused acidity with a long finish.


Food Pairing
Goes well with game, beef, pasta, rice and cheeses.
