    “A perfumed nose of dark cherries, dried herbs, tea leaves, smoke and wet earth. It’s full-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Vibrant and balanced with a velvety texture. A beautiful red with tension and harmony. Long, flavorful long finish.

    Robert Parker, 93 pts

    Produced with Tempranillo grapes from their 25- to 30-year-old vines, the 2016 Corimbo, feels super harmonious and elegant, with subtle aromas and integrated oak. It's sleek and polished, with a soft texture and round tannins. It's subtle, serious and elegant.”

    Bodegas La Horra is a venture from the iconic Rioja producer, Bodegas Roda. They spent four years in research and investigation to find the land best adapted to Tempranillo, the variety which is known in depth by the research and technical team at Roda. They found the most suitable region was Ribera del Duero and specifically within this DO, the area of La Horra. They partnered with the Balbas family, who own some of the most coveted vineyard sites in the village with old bush vines of Tinta del País.
