General information

The intelligent wine

Cirsion 2010 is the masterpiece of Roda, one of the few wineries that truly represent the modern and avant-garde Rioja which has raised Spanish wine to the peak of the international landscape.

Bodegas Roda has in barely two decades built a school which brings together the essence of Riojan wine and the most precise oenological mathematics. Cirsion 2010 is the perfect equation, a wine made to seduce and endure over time. Created with a selection of Tempranillo bunches from different plots, in which research has been carried out on the polymerisation of tannins and anthocyanins. It ferments in oak vats and ages in French oak barrels.

The Excellent 2010 vintage, which merges maturity and freshness as few do, will turn this Rioja into a real collector’s item.

In 1995, the wine team of Bodegas Roda, led by Agustín Santolaya, discovered that certain bunches produced grapes with a structure and silkiness far above the usual, as if the fruit had gone through an aging process. Santolaya decided to create a wine only with these exceptional grains and thus Cirsion was born, a modern, subtle, elegant red wine.
