Corimbo I 2014
Nariz intensa, voluminosa, elegante y pulida. La mora y la ciruela negra aparecen entre la sensación de plantas aromáticas. Una nota de mineralidad remata el abanico aromático de este vino, uno de los grandes desconocidos de la zona que demuestra que una Ribera del Duero diferente es posible.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2014 Corimbo I, their top bottling, fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in French and American oak barrels, 40% to 50% of them new, for 16 months. 2014 was a heterogeneous vintage in Ribera del Duero, and I cannot really describe the style of the wines from that year because they seem to be all over the place. Some wines seem to be weaker than the 2015s, and the élevage here feels a little harsh for the quality of the juice. There are plenty of smoky, toasty and spicy aromas and flavors, and the wine comes through as medium-bodied with plenty of dusty tannins and faint bitterness in the finish. 36,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2016.
Black-licorice and blueberry character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins. Flavorful. Attractive polish and finesse here. Drink now or hold.
Wonderfully balanced, rather than being impressive as such, this wine is a memorable example of great subtlety and consistency. With its elegant La Horra austerity and refinement, and stupendous finish, it will benefit from bottle ageing. One of the greatest successes of Rioja producers (Bodegas Roda in this case) in Ribera del Duero. 16 months’ oak.
