The wine

A great Rioja from recent times, made from grapes grown in exceptional vineyards. Most importantly, this wine has become a complete project for the winery, Bodegas Roda, who produce the wine in a special way, with the careful selection of certain bunches of grapes which have been “reared” on the same vine naturally. By this process, they obtain a particularly silky-smooth wine without losing any of its fruitiness after spending time in oak.

NOTE: Decanting is recommended several hours before drinking, especially with the young vintages. This is a wine that has great cellaring potential.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

Released much earlier than the rest of the wines, the 2016 Cirsion is produced with very ripe grapes that they think need less time in oak, and the wine is therefore bottled and released earlier. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 11% Graciano matured in new French barriques for eight months, bottled and released ten months later. This is young and heady, explosive, with plenty of ripe fruit and a hedonistic profile. It has abundant, very fine tannins and a good thread of acidity going through its core that lifts the finish. It's unashamedly modern and showy. 12,500 bottles were filled in March 2018.

The winery

Bodegas Roda

Bodegas Roda

Bodegas Roda was founded in 1987 by Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella, who used their surnames to create the winery's name. It is located in the heart of the most historic area of Rioja wine — the Barrio de la Estación. The design of their modern 21st century building sits alongside the more classical style of neighbouring wineries, some of which are among the oldest wineries in Rioja. The harmony between the two styles is also found in the Roda wines, which bring together...
