Bodegas Borsao Monte Oton


Campo de Borja is a DO (Denominación de Origen) in the region of Aragón. Aragón is nestled against the Pyrenées Mountains, surrounded by the prime wine regions of Catalonia and La Rioja. Viticulture dates back centuries and was closely linked to monastery life. Campo de Borja has a hot, Continental climate that is a continuation of Rioja’s Baja zone. Its soil is primarily composed of chalk and clay, and many of the vineyards are planted along the limestone-rich foothills of the Sierra del Moncayo. The vineyards for Monte Oton are situated high on the windswept slopes of the Moncayo. This sun drenched, arid location is ideal for harvesting, perfectly matured, fully ripened Garnacha grapes. The resulting wine is full bodied, elegantly textured and exhibits a long complex finish.
