Red Wine Carmelo Rodero Reserva 2018
Availability: In stock
Produced by Bodegas Rodero from vineyards over 30 years of age located near Pedrosa del Duero, Carmelo Rodero Reserva is made from one of the oldest and purest Tinta del País clones in Ribera de Duero.
The vineyards sit between 750 and 850 metres of altitude, in an area with a harsh Continental climate. The soils are composed mainly of clay, with small amounts of pebble stones, slime and sand.
The composition of this Spanish red wine is 90% Tinta del País (Tempranillo) and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
After the harvest, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation and maceration were completed, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was aged for 21 months in French oak barrels, with periodic rackings.
Finally, Carmelo Rodero Reserva 2018 was aged for a minimum of 24 months in the bottle before its commercial release.
Decant this reserva red wine a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
Very limited availability.
The red wine Carmelo Rodero Reserva is medium purple with some violet tinges.
Deep and balanced, this blend of Tinta del País (Tempranillo) and Cabernet Sauvignon conveys rich aromas of wild berries, notes of vanilla and cinnamon, suggestions of flowers and aromatic herbs, and some creamy, toasted, coffee-like notes. Everything is subtly conveyed and definitely unemphatic.
Elegant and gentlemanly, with a rock-solid estructure and a smooth body. In this wine of Bodega Carmelo Rodero the flavours of ripe red fruit are perfectly harmonized with the ageing notes, tannins are soft and ripe, and acidity is perfectly balanced. Long, mineral finish with some earthy and smokey overtones.
