A high-end Spanish red wine from Ribera del Duero, Carmelo Rodero Pago de Valtarreña is a varietal Tinta del País wine produced by Bodegas Rodero.
This single vineyard reserva red wine is made from over 50-year-old vines grown in sandy and rocky soils..
Harvested by hand and exactingly selected, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Then, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was transferred into 225-litre new and 2nd year French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for over a period of 24 months.
Produced only in exceptional vintages, Carmelo Rodero Pago de Valtarreña 2019 is a paragon of quality. All bottles are numbered.
Decant at least 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Carmelo Rodero Pago de Valtarreña is deep purple with a violet rim.
Impressively deep, serious and intense. This Tinta del País (aka Tempranillo) begins with some deep notes of undergrowth and dry earth, seguing into pristine aromas of blueberries, balsam, coffee, leather and toast. Threre is an ever-present, beating mineral background, and some echos of spices and flowers
Bold and information-rich, this wine of Bodegas Rodero shows amazing promise, announcing an impressive development over the next years. Intricate and multilayered, with a, so to speak, pressurized complexity that really needs some time to loosen up. Wonderfully suggestive notes of blackberry liquor, wet undergrowth, tobacco leaves and bitter cocoa, with a deep mineral core. Very long, complex finish.
