Matallana 2020

Telmo Rodriguez

Case Format: 12x75cl

Blended from 11 different parcels distributed across five villages and totalling 21.5 hectares, Matallana is a true reflection of the diversity and richness of Riberia de Duero. Created by esteemed Riojan winemaker Telmo Rodriguez, he has used this beautiful wine to expose some of the more forgotten terroirs of Ribeira.

The vineyards include the grape varieties of Tinto Fino, Navarro, Valenciano and Albillo and sit on varied beds of clay, red feldspar and petrocalcic soils.



Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW

The best Matallana I have ever tasted, developing the best and most elusive quality in top Ribera: tightly grained finesse. Delicate aromas, with blackberry fruit and spicy notes from the oak that are enhancing the fruit. Dense but not overpowering in palate, silky, poised, tight but gentle. Toffee and blueberries in aftertaste, still a bit close. The wine needs some years to open up. Very good ribera, with a distinctive character.

James Suckling

A very elegant and complex red with super fine tannins that show a chalky and subtle white pepper character. Medium body. Fine integrated tannins which are creamy. Yet they are chewy and very typical for the region. So attractive now but this is built to age beautifully. A very refined wine for Ribera del Duero. Drinkable now, but better in three or four years.
