Cerrado del Castillo is only made when the harvest achieves the maximum expression of the terroir and in addition has total balance.
This only happens in exceptional years in wich the growing conditions were right for obtaining a harvest with perfect ripeness.
It is a wine made from 35-year-old tempranillo vines grown in the walled enclosure of the castle.
After strict selection of the clusters and after completion of alcoholic fermentation, the wine is kept in casks in the castle basement where it is left for approximately 18 months.
It is a red wine with an intense black-cherry colour and intense, elegant aromas. Its balance and persistent aromatic bouquet make it a long wine with a lot of flavour and a lovely finish. It reveals a sensory character which cannot be matched and which faithfully reflect its roots.
The top wine from a boutique bodega in a renovated 14th century castle. 100% Tempranillo from old bush vines, give lots of concentration and elegance, wrapped in toasty oak.

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...
