(From 2009 Vintage) Cherry red colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with thin, slow-falling tears. Good intensity nasal aromas, among which the intense and very expressive notes of ripe red fruit stand out. Perfectly integrated light toasted aromas are also felt. Some balsamic and spicy notes are also noticed along with hints of wet earth. This wine shows a good, quite bulky and silky attack and a very nice mid palate in which the same red fruit notes noticed in the nose appear. It shows a good acidity which provides it with freshness and a soft and very refined tannic sensation.
(From 2002 Vintage) The nose opens up with a good wack of complexity: raspberries, mulberries, earthy undergrowth, and coffee. Full bodied to start with, in time it comes down a notch to revel the classic Roda smoothness, balance and plush tannins.
