You will like to know that…

Cirsión 2016 is the high-end cuvée of Roda, which is made with a selection of vines from its vineyards - based on a R & D development focused on the polymerization of tannins in the grapes -, it is not a standard "superriojano". Contrary to what happens with most of the Rioja elite reds, which abound in concentration and power, Cirsion seeks excellence in elegance and complexity, and in a fineness and aromatic richness that is revealed even when wine is young.

It is a red that is enjoyed alone, in good company and that harmonizes with a wide range of dishes, even with chocolate desserts.
