Carmelo Rodero Reserve
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 30 years. It is a great wine, very balanced and suggestive, with an intense cherry red color with soft violet notes, which marks its 21-month aging in French oak with bright tile and amber rims.
Nose of great subtlety with aromas of ripe fruits very well combined with aging in wood, which leads us to special aromas (vanilla, cinnamon) to the stimulating aroma of coffee or toasts. Very meaty on the palate, with a long finish and balanced acidity. Harmonious ripe and soft tannins that fill the palate with pleasant sensations.
Consumption temperature between 16-18ºC
