Bodegas La Horra was established in 2009 by Bodegas Roda, in search of the best location to grow Tempranillo outside of La Rioja. The eventual site that was chosen is set in the heart of Ribera del Duero’s most traditional neighbourhood: La Horra.
Vineyard/Winemaking: Plots of La Horra and Roa (Burgos) with an average age of 50 years are used to produce Corimbo I. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak vats and the maceration time is around 18 days. Ageing lasts around 16 months in barrels of 80% French oak and 20% American oak, allowing the wine to become wonderfully complex and rich.
Tasting note: The 2016 Corimbo I has a high layer with an intense and bright colour, with a cherry red background and a bright red rim. The nose 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. Elegant, intense and fresh at the same time. The black and red fruits are combined in a very attractive set with fine and polished tannins. There is no feeling of weight or alcohol; a truly well-balanced vintage.
