A medium to full-bodied red wine.
91% Tempranillo, 9% Graciano
Bodegas Roda 1 2011 has a high layer colour with dark red background. It has a beautiful nose, intense with black fruit and reddish details. The plum becomes the protagonist among cherries and sweet spices. There are waves of aromas that rise from the depth leaving memories of earth and minerals. The palate is wide, powerful and delicate at the same time. Very cosy and pleasant, combining sweetness and freshness. The tannin is very fine and you can feel, between the silkiness of the black plums, the chocolate notes and the memory of a cigars box. A wine from a fine vintage.
CLIMATIC CYCLE An excellent vintage. 568 mm. rainfall during the vegetative cycle. The “high” temperatures in March and April caused an early budding of 15 days compared to 2010. During the month of July, the temperatures dropped, the average monthly temperature of 19ºC, and the differences with 2010 were reduced to one week at veraison. The low rainfall in the summer months and the high temperatures of August and September, with a lower production of the vineyard, made that the harvest com early, between 15 and 20 days, compared to 2010.
NOTE: Decanting is recommended before serving
Pair with strong flavours like Iberian ham, large game, mature cheese, roasts and game stew.
