2018 Bodegas La Horra Corimbo
Corimbo is the latest wine adventure from Bodegas Roda known for its fine Rioja wines. The Corimbo comes from the golden mile in the valley Ribera del Duero. The La Horra project was started in 2006 and the first vintage was vinified in 2008. The construction of the new bodega started in 2012. Bodegas Roda uses the thistle (corimbo) as its logo. After the selection table, the wine undergoes its maceration in stainless steel cuves. The malolactic fermentation takes place in foeders. Barrique aging for 12 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barriques. 1/3 consists of new oak.
In the glass, the Corimbo is deep red and compact in color with an open bouquet. In the nose soft refined scents of ripe blackberries, cinnamon, pepper accent, discreet licorice touch, but no trace of barrel maturation. Balm-like fresh and plump attack à la Rioja that opens up on the midriff. With the second sip, the Ribera character comes through more (La Horra has a lot of Vieilles Vignes or old vines). Corimbo literally blooms open in the glass. To describe its flavor profile even more clearly, we can talk about a Ribera that finds the balance between the classic but brought in a contemporary way. A wine that cannot be seduced by concentration alone.
