A warm, generous red from Campo de Borja's star producer. 'Bole' refers to the wood, with just 3 months maturation in French oak barriques giving additional complexity.
Intense ripe plum and cherry aromas combine with sweet toasty oak on the nose. A rich, warm, generous palate with concentrated blackberry fruit, backed by acidity and ripe tannins. Good concentration with coffee and spicy vanilla notes - bright through to the finish.
Produced from 15-30 year old Garnacha vines from selected vineyards at 500-600m altitude and 10 year old Syrah vines. The poor stony, sandy soils, low night-time temperatures and moderate yields give grapes with excellent colour, extract and acidity. Fermented at 22-25C with 15 days maceration followed by 3 months maturation in French oak barriques (new or 2nd year).
Try with meaty, full-flavoured sausages, or steak with peppercorn sauce.
