Bodegas La Horra Corimbo 2012
Intense red colour of cherry background and lively edging. Very fruit notes in the range of cherry, plum and blackberry, forming a set where the red fruit predominates. Very delicate feeling of fine wood perfectly integrated with dark fruits. Slightly spicy in the line of the aromatic herbs in the pine forest and a clove background that makes it enigmatic. Medium volume and great expressivity, soft with fresh and fine tannin. With good texture. Fruity feeling or red fruits in which emphasize the cherry. It is wraparound and caressing wine. Elegant, long, fresh and silky, a wine to enjoy. The 2012 was a fresh and dry vintage in Ribera and the wines are marked by a line of finesse and balance.
The team of Bodegas Roda has been during four years investigating throughout Spanish territory which lands were better adapted to the tempranillo production, the variety which is known in depth by the research and technical team of Roda. The most suitable region was Ribera del Duero and within this D. O. the area of La Horra, in the province of Burgos. The most suitable region was Ribera del Duero and within this D. O. the area of La Horra, in the province of Burgos. La Horra was chosen, not only because of its long tradition of vine cultivation that it goes back to the pre-Roman times, but because the team of Bodegas Roda concluded that it was the area in which most liked the potential and adaptation of the tempranillo, as well as being one of the most fresh areas of the D. O., a very necessary data to produce the style of wine characteristic of Bodegas Roda.
