Description

Bodegas Roda Sela Rioja is bright red in colour, young and strong. It is intense, fruity and cheerful, with lots of liveliness. Very nice red fruits in the line of fresh cherries and raspberries. It is very clean and transparent, with totally imperceptible oak despite its year of aging. Medium volume with very fine tannins, the fruity sensation is fresh and delicate, highlighting the flavours of fresh red fruits. Long, fine and elegant.

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.
