Cherry red in colour, against a dark background with slight purple edging. Deep, intense colouring. On the nose, very intense and voluminous, yet elegant and polished. The fruits of the vineyard and the grape harvest stand out strongly against the hint of ripeness, which is detected at the bottom. Blackberries and damsons are clearly identificable against a background impression of aromatic plants flowering in the pine forest. A deep mineral note rounds off the aromatic profile of this magnificent wine. On the palate, voluminous, ample, filling the mouth with black fruits that give way to notes of aromatic plants and earthiness. The wine finishes with a deep freshness, reminiscent of special qualities of the land during an excellent year.
Bodegas Roda undertakes a new adventure. After a trajectory over twenty years, which has become by its consolidated work of the R&D research, one of the most prestigious wineries in the D.O.Ca Rioja, Roda proposes to exploit the knowledge and experience to diversify in the D.O. Ribera del Duero with Bodegas La Horra. The diversification of the company began in 1999 with the olive oil. Nowadays, Bodegas Roda produces two olive oil plots: Dauro in the Empordà and Aubocassa in Majorca. The new company will exploit the existing synergies in the R&D research and the commercial distribution of Roda, Dauro and Aubocassa, products available in 55 countries.
