Bodegas La Horra - Corimbo 2015
Bodegas La Horra – Corimbo 2015 (90 TSW)
Dear Winefriends. Happy Holidays and all the best to you in the year to come!
I hope you will grab some beautiful wines and enjoy them with family and friends.
This beautiful red wine from Ribera del Duero I found at Decantalo.com
They have a marvelous selection of Spanish wines for the best prices with excellent shipping cost.
This red wine has been made for 100% with the Tinta del País (Tempranillo) variety, grown from an organic vineyard without irrigation, located in the surroundings of La Horra and Roa de Duero (Burgos) for an average of 25 to 30 years.
Corimbo performs malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and is aged for 14 months in French and American oak barrels, 10-15% of which are new barrels.
My tasting notes:
In the glass an intense dark cherry red color
On the medium+ nose of dark plums, dark cherries and blackberries with hints of pine, vanilla, balsamico and barrique.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied with firm ripe tannins, medium acidity and nice freshness. Flavours of cherries, blackberries, dark chocolate and vanilla. The finish is medium+ with dark fruits. Still young but already very nice drinkable.
Corimbo from Bodegas La Horra is the newest wine adventure from Bodegas Roda known for its beautiful Rioja wines. The wine company is called Bodegas La Horra here in the Ribera del Duero. The Corimbo comes from the golden mile in the Ribera del Duero valley.
The project started in 2006 and in 2008 the first volume was determined. The construction of the new bodega started in 2012. Corimbo is a botanical term. When the thistle flower is blooming horizontally, we are talking about a Corimbo. A Corimbo would be a fairly rare given.
