Description

Bodegas Roda Cirsion is produced from vines with a curious natural peculiarity, leading to an intense wine with enormous and almost impenetrable depth. Red flashes with icing tones are projected from the background. A very complex nose, formed by a thousand layers, almost indecipherable, but all exciting. A slight aromatic smoke of the best oak and the finest spices followed by black fruits with a red glow. Aromas reminiscent of wet land and rain on the earth, fresh spices, cocoa, tobacco and a landscape of violets in the background. For such a young wine, Cirsion shows amazing tannins, intensity and delicacy, with endless freshness. Silky and alive, full and caressing.

Founded in the late 1980s, Bodegas Roda have rapidly gained renown for its meticulous and exacting research into Tempranillo, one of Spain’s oldest indigenous grape varieties. Using the most modern of technology, Roda have perfected the art of Tempranillo, identifying 552 individual clones, from which only 20 have been selected for propagation, chosen for the quality they deliver in specific vineyard plots. Tended by renowned Rioja expert Agustín Santolaya, President and Supervising Winemaker, the Roda vineyards consist of 28 immaculate blocks of old Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano vines, located in the best ecosystems of La Rioja Alta. Here, the Atlantic, the Continental and the Mediterranean climates play off each other unpredictably, causing a given vineyard to respond differently from one year to the next. This variation forms the heart of the Roda philosophy to express not just a sense of place, but also the climatic year of each vintage.
