Product Description

Produced by the Borsao wineryBorsao Berola bears the label of the DO Campo de Borja. The name "Berola", by the way, is an hommage to the Cister Monks who founded the Monastery of Veruela, the cradle of the Campo de Borja wine producing area.

This juicy Spanish red wine is made from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah coming from vineyards located at an altitude of 600 to 700 metres above sea level and grown in clay-limestone soils.

The Grenache vines are 35 to 60 years old, while the younger Syrah vines are only 10 years old.

Vinified separately, before alcoholic fermentation each variety was cold-soaked in stainless steel tanks to extract colour and aromas. Fermentation took place at a controlled temperature, and then Borsao Berola 2016 was aged for 14 months in American and French oak barrels.

Aerate 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Borsao Berola has a high ruby-coloured robe with a violet rim.


Elegantly complex, this red wine from Campo de Borja has a nose which combines aromas of ripe black fruit, notes of liquorice, cocoa, undergrowth and also some balsamic and toasty hints.


Intense and delicately warm, this wine by Bodegas Borsao has a smooth passage through the palate. Notes of black currants, menthol, dry earth and spices. A gentle and smooth red wine from Aragón, with silky tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Fruity and toasty aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

From Campo de Borja, Borsao Berola 2016 shows a good balance between oak, fruit and alcohol. An excellent value indeed.
