Senorio de Unuela Reserva Edicion Limitada Reserva Edicion Limitada Bodegas Patrocinio Spanien Rioja Roda Viner. Kryddiga & Mustiga Tempranillo 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

CIRSION has a deep, blackish purple colour, its aromas unravel in successive waves of very black fruit, damp earth, violets, chocolate and mint, eucalyptus, smoke… On the palate, it has huge volume combining in astonishing manner great structure with wonderful smoothness. Layers and layers of aromas and flavours which linger in the mouth, caressing it before developing into a finish that stays in the mouth and returns to the nose. It is advisable to decant the wine several hours before serving, especially the younger vintages.

At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world. In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro’s world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place. What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario’s and Carmen’s surnames, RO-DA. The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established. The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja’s wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used. There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added to homogenise or freshen up a vintage. Only wines made at our winery are bottled, we never buy-in wine from other cellars. Wines that bring out the very essence of their terroir, the vineyard, soil, climate, landscape, wines made to be enjoyed. There is no hurry to get a return on investment. The constant aim is, with time, to be recognised as producers of one of the greatest wines in the world. In this way, all the means will subsequently be gained to achieve our aims. Twenty or so carefully supervised blocks of vines, spread out among the best eco-systems of the area, from which the 17 best are vinified each year. Old vines are used, guaranteeing the best quality Tempranillo and Grenache grapes. An evaluation system for bought-in grapes was introduced that had never existed before. Harvesting is done in small crates and the first sorting table in the Rioja was introduced here. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled oak vats. Ageing is in 100% French oak barrels. We are committed to research and development, which enables us to head international projects through our active R&D department. In all, an exciting project which we invite you all to discover.

Deep rich blood red in color. The nose shows strong anise, deep black cherry notes, raspberries and cinnamon. I want to keep my nose in this glass all night long. A succulent and rich wine that is elegant and well balanced. In the mouth flavors of rich cinnamon, raspberry, black cherries, and more all mingle and dance. Soft overall and delicious. 4/5 [NR]

Approachable and modern, this Rioja offers intense aromatics of black cherry and raspberry, as well as licorice, scorched earth, and cinnamon from its time spent in barrel. While powerfully constructed, this wine is eminently drinkable today, showing lots of rich fruit.
