As of the 2.002 harvest, RODA II was renamed RODA. Once the 17 wines from the 17 selected vineyards that year, take a year of barrel, it is time to create RODA and RODA I.
In the assembly of RODA, we look for the payments of red fruit, with the expression of the aromas present in the edge of the glass, arranged to be felt immediately, with notes of sweet spices and a festive freshness. In the mouth, the red fruit is the protagonist, with a fresh, long, silky and continuous volume of mouth.
Excellent wines for the gastronomy, very versatile, able to mate with a fish, with a roasted meat or with a complex stew.
