Matarromera Crianza is not just a wine, it is almost a cult. If you know it, no explanation is needed. If you don’t know it (and what a joy it is to discover it for the first time) we have a lot to tell you about this red wine from Ribera del Duero.
Its first vintage, 1994, was awarded the title of Best Wine in the World at an international competition organised by the Spanish Wine Interprofessional Organisation (OIVE), held in Turkey. Since then, this 100% tempranillo has been one of the hallmarks of Bodega Matarromera, located in Valbuena de Duero. What is so amazing about this iconic wine?
First of all, it is the identity of the terroir of the historic vineyards of the Matarromera hamlet, which is characterised by its calcareous-clay soil and harsh climate with large temperature fluctuations.
