Red Wine Sela 2017
Availability: In stock
Located in the very heart of La Rioja, Bodegas Roda produces Sela from relatively young, 15 to 30-year-old vines.
Traditionally vinified, both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in French oak vats. After that, this red wine from La Rioja was aged in used French oak barrels for 12 months.
Naturally stabilized, this Crianza red wine was finally clarified with egg whites.
Aerate Sela 2017 from La Rioja 30 minutes before drinking.
The wine Sela has a lively cherry colour with a reddish rim.
Elegant and suggestive, this wine from Bodegas Roda exhibits some nicely understated notes of wild berries, slowly evolving into aromas of cherries, peach skin, spices and suggestions of underbush. This Tempranillo from La Rioja also suggests some dim mineral undertones, punctuated by some delicately spicy and toasted touches.
Gentle and harmonious, this Crianza from La Rioja has a nimble passage through the palate. Ripe red berries, garrigue, charcoal and spices. Fresh and vibrant, Sela has an excellent acidity and a very fresh, delicately mineral finish.
