Nos encontramos ante la joya de la corona de Bodegas Alto Moncayo. Monovarietal de Garnacha, es uno de los embajadores de Campo de Borja y, además, está avalado por la crítica más influyente. Resulta complejo e intenso en nariz, tostado, mineral, con recuerdos de fruta en confitura. Potente y amplio en boca, carnoso, fresco y vivo.

I also tasted the 2014 Aquilón, from a year with slightly lower acidity, a very dark and concentrated red from old vine, head-pruned Garnacha fermented with dry yeasts in small tanks and matured in new oak barrels, most of them made with French oak with some 20% of them American. This is your prototype of dark and concentrated, heady and generously oaked Garnacha. It is closer to a wine from Priorat than from Navarra or Gredos, for fans of the style, but remarkably good within that profile. As I commented about the other 2014 and the 2013s, I found the oak to be better integrated than in previous years, despite all the barrels being new, and the wine is in good balance. A powerful, XXL Garnacha. 4,380 bottles were filled in September 2016.
