Corimbo from Bodegas La Horra is the latest wine adventure from Bodegas Roda, known for its beautiful Rioja wines. The wine company here in the Ribera del Duero is called Bodegas La Horra. The Corimbo comes from the golden mile in the Ribera del Duero valley. The project was started in 2006 and in 2008 the first vintage was vinified. Construction of the new bodega started in 2012. Corimbo is a botanical term. When the thistle flower is in bloom horizontally, we speak of a Corimbo. A Corimbo would be quite a rare item.

The Corimbo I is the top model of Bodegas La Horra (in line with their Roda line such as the Roda and Roda I). The wine matures for 14 months in 80% French and 20% American oak. For 1/3 new oak barrels. The Corimbo I is deep red in color. Youthful blueberry aromas, density, must be swirled in the glass to release all its fragrances. A discreet spiciness emerges, but with no trace of cask ageing. Juicy on the palate, lots of everything, great attack, tasty. With the second sip we notice more structure, depth and the Ribera character unfolds more. Nevertheless, the Corimbo I has a certain Roda identity.
