Much sought after Decanter World Wine award best in show winner. A very intense, deep, elegant, heady nose with well integrated oak. The palate shows ripe black fruit with hints of minerality, sweet spice and black chocolate. A powerful wine with refreshing balsamic hints from the aromatic plants of the surrounding pine forest. Quality firm tannins lead onto a lasting finish with perfectly integrated oak notes resonating.

Bodegas La Horra is a relatively new project in Ribera del Duero. Using experience and knowledge gained in La Rioja, the dynamic team at Bodegas Roda commenced this project in Ribera del Duero in 1999, utilising their experience and incredible know-how of Tempranillo but in the context of the Ribera del Duero region. Corimbo comes from 20 year old vines and has a rich bright fruit core thanks to a shorter maceration time. Plots of La Horra and Roa (Burgos) with an average age of 4o years are used to produce Corimbo I (launched with the 2009 vintage) and features darker more restrained fruit. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak vats and the maceration time is around 18 days. Ageing lasts around 16 months in barrels of 5o% French oak and 5o% American oak, allowing the wine to become wonderfully complex and rich. The success in both wines is thanks to the high altitude of the vineyards, so despite a continental climate, these wines are supremely elegant and well balanced. Everything you might expect from the Roda team.
