Excellent expression of Rioja from this high-end winery, located near Haro, in one of the most historic parts of La Rioja. Despite the historic location, Roda wines tend to be fairly modern expressions of Rioja, with concentrated dark fruits and a solid backbone of French oak present.
Roda I Reserva comes from a harvest classified as "Muy buena" (very good) and is starting to drink nicely now.

Another "wow" wine and also a generous dose of "OMG". This wine you just have to try. Danish Winemaker Peter Sisseck is the genius behind one of Spain´s most cult and expensive wines "Pingus" and knows and understands the Ribera del Duero region intimately. PSI is a relatively new project,...
