Characteristics of Carmelo Rodero Reserva
Carmelo Rodero Reserva is a red wine from Ribera del Duero produced by Bodegas Rodero. The winery is located in Pedrosa del Duero (Burgos).
Carmelo Rodero Reserva is made with the Tinta del Pais (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The grapes come from old vines over 30 years old on the 80 hectares that the winery has in Pedrosa de Duero, Boada de Roa Roa and Mambrilla Castrejon.
Carmelo Rodero Reserva is made the traditional way. Both the maceration and alcoholic fermentation are performed at controlled temperature.
Aging, meanwhile, lasts 21 months, 15 of which are conducted in French oak barrels and the remaining 6 in American oak barrels.
Finally, it spends 24 months in bottle to finish rounding.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest.
The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.

The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
