The Spanish red wine Borsao Bole is produced in the northern region of Campo de Borja, belonging to the province of Aragón.
Traditionally vinified, both grapes were separately fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, Borsao Bole 2016 from Bodegas Borsao was aged for 3 months in 1st and 2nd year French oak barrels.
The red wine Borsao Bole has a clean crimson colour with a violet rim.
This Spanish red wine from Campo de Borja carries some expressive aromas of ripe red fruit, combined with notes of underbush, balsam, cinnamon, black pepper and toast.
Juicy and expansive, this blend of Grenache and Syrah produced by Bodegas Borsao exhibits delicious notes of blackcurrants, raspberries, liquorice, underbush and spices. Fresh acidity, crunchy tannins and long finish.
|Our personal opinion||
From northern Aragón, thought to be the craddle of Grenache, Borsao Bole 2016 is a truly exceptional value.
