Carmelo Rodero runs his family owned bodegas in the Ribera town of Pedrosa de Duero. The fruit for this entry-level cuvee is from young vines, 5 to 15 years old. The wine is aged for 9 months in French oak barrels, so is effectively half way between a roble and a crianza. The bottle is aged for 3 months before releasing to market.
On the nose, an intense aroma of flowers and wild berries, united with creamy and vanilla touches, specific to its ageing in wood. The mid-palate is broad, elegant, persistent and velvety.
