Description

Bodegas Roda I Reserva 2015 is a blend of parcels displaying dark fruit notes that form an ensemble, slowly flowing from the furthest side of the glass until it becomes huge in the entrance of the nose. Very intense and deep, with well integrated and high-quality oak. Black fruits appear on the nose with ripe and fresh plum dominating, chocolate notes and tobacco leaves follow. It has a mineral character that highlights the smell of the earth, mixed with aromas of aromatic plants. Very wide in the mouth and long at the same time, greatly balanced. Friendly and tasty, with a lot of complex and elegant flavour.

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.
