CORIMBO I is the stellar wine of Bodegas LA HORRA, voluminous and at the same time fine and elegant. From vines over 50 years old and made 100% from the Tinta del País variety. It undergoes the alcoholic fermentation in wooden vats and the malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. It is aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, of which 40-50% are new barrels. CORIMBO I was chosen as "Platinum Best In Show", the best red wine in the world over 15 pounds made with Spanish varieties, in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2016 (DWWA), the most prestigious wine competition in the world.
- It has a high layer, with an intense and bright colour, with a cherry red background and a bright red rim.
- It is very intense and full of different nuances in many overlapping layers. The fruit is black in profile with some red highlights. It is dominated by black plums, blackberries and cherries. It forms a complete landscape, made up of aromatic herbs, fruits, some spices and damp earth. The olfactory sensation is very fresh and the oak is perfectly integrated.
- Elegance, intensity and freshness at the same time. The black and red fruits are combined in a very attractive set. The tannins are fine and polished. There is no feeling of weight or alcohol, just balance. Perhaps it is not the most corpulent vintage, but it is one of the best balanced. Delicious wine with enough presence. Harmonic and long, leaving a sensation of flatness and freshness.
