Carmelo Rodero Crianza
Carmelo Rodero belongs to an old line of winegrowers from the riverside town of Pedrosa de Duero. His childhood was spent among vineyards and wineries and his first memories evoke his grandparents making wine in the traditional way. Such was Carmelo’s passion that from his adolescence he began to invest his first earnings in new vineyard plantations, and thus, based on enthusiasm, effort and sacrifice, he managed to form a considerable farm.
Towards the year 1990 he began his own journey, always supported by his wife Elena. Together they bet on the future and quality, knowing that the basis of a great wine is always found in the excellence of its “black pearls” which is how Carmelo loves they like to name the fruit of their vines. All this effort and search for quality has been rewarded with national and international awards for each wine produced since then by Bodegas Rodero. A new generation has joined this exciting project, Beatriz and María, the two daughters of Carmelo and Elena. They have inherited the passion of their parents.
From their own vineyards with more than 15 years. Traditional elaboration with the most modern techniques of temperature control in fermentation and maceration. Aging in French oak for a minimum of 15 months and racking every 3 months. Bottle rack at least 12 months before marketing. How could it be less, here is an excellent wine, impressive in its youth, elegant in its maturity.
Ruby color with a high robe, it maintains excellent cherry notes covered by pinkish hues, in a perfectly clean and bright medium. Its still varietal aromas are the first to appear, well accompanied by a smooth roast well combined with a final touch of liquorice, finer if possible. Structured and meaty with an excellent bouquet that remains aftertaste after filling our mouth with intense flavor; a perfectly balanced wine, long and generous in taste sensations.
Service temperature between 14-16ºC.
