Since 2009 Bodegas la Horra, located in the province of Burgos, has been producing Tempranillo wines with Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin that stand out for their finesse and character.
Bodegas La Horra is a project belonging to Bodegas Roda (Haro, La Rioja) that is created with the intention of finding the best location for the cultivation of the Tempranillo variety outside the community of La Rioja. Thus, in 2009 the winery was born in the area of la Horra (province of Burgos), within the Denomination of Origin Ribera del Duero.
This is a location that stands out for the age of its vineyards, something essential to obtain the highest quality of the grapes. In addition to this characteristic, La Horra is one of the coolest areas of Ribera del Duero, where deep, sandy-clay soils predominate.
All these conditions allow the best Tempranillo to be grown in the vineyards of Bodegas la Horra. This is the only variety with which the winery works, since its intention is to produce the best 100% Tempranillo red wines that perfectly reflect the uniqueness of the Ribera del Duero.
In order for Tempranillo grapes to retain all their properties, ecological working methods and minimal intervention are followed, both in the field and in the winery.
Bodegas La Horra has worked in detail for more than 10 years to obtain wines that not only represent the Burgundian terroir, but are also synonymous with freshness, finesse and quality.
This is how Corimbo and Corimbo I were born. Both red wines are monovarietal Tempranillo made and fermented in American and French oak vats. As for the aging, the Corimbo rests for 14 months in American and French oak barrels, while the Corimbo I does it for 2 more months, a total of 16.
Another difference between the wines of Bodegas La Horra is that the first of them is made from grapes grown in vineyards with an average of 25/30 years old; on the other hand, the second of the wines la Horra comes from vineyards with more than 50 years of wine history.
Both red wines express the quality and uniqueness of the vineyards of the Ribera del Duero denomination of Origin.
