In Valbuena de Duero, the cradle of Tempranillo in the Ribera del Duero, the roots of Bodega Matarromera are settled, on the side of a hill facing south, from which the impassive River Duero can be seen. This cozy winery is the perfect setting for the production of aging wines, since the conditions provided by its semi-buried warehouses are perfect for the production of wines in which the balance between the oak and the Tempranillo is the protagonist. The first vintage of Bodega Matarromera obtained the Great Gold Medal at the International Wine Competition, which was an incredible starting point for a story plagued with success.
Heiress to a privileged vineyard in one of the most exclusive areas of the Ribera del Duero, Bodega Matarromera is dedicated to the production of large reserve, reserve and aging red wines, and a white wine, with total personality and excellence. Its wines are the result of the perfect mesh between the creative genius of nature and the obstinacy of a man to recover the family tradition, collect and perpetuate a legacy.
Las Celadillas are located very close to Bodega Matarromera, in the municipality of Olivares de Duero (Valladolid) and are planted with traditional Tempranillo clones from the area. Las Solanas is the mythical payment of Matarromera, some areas of this plot are used for the production of Matarromera Reserva.
Fruit of patience. If there is something that characterizes Bodega Matarromera, it is its ability to produce wines for aging in the Ribera del Duero. Why? There are many reasons, but the key is in the raw material, or what is the same, in the vineyard. For its reserve wines, Matarromera chooses:
Vines over 25 years old and with moderate vegetation, which give rise to smaller bunches and grape berries but with a higher concentration of color and polyphenols.
Limestone soils located at more than 750 meters of altitude. Limestone is a type of calcareous rock that allows good water drainage and gives full-bodied wines, suitable for ageing.
What is Matarromera Reserve like?
• Presents an intense color with incredible bluish tones.
• Aromas of ripe black fruit, with clear mineral touches typical of limestone soils. In addition, light nuances of cocoa, spices and balsamic.
• In its first years we find sensations of dark chocolate in the mouth that will evolve into new leather and pipe.
• Exclusive and unique wine, representative of a saga of iconic wines.
Our pairing proposal? A good barbecue, spicy dishes, roast suckling lamb, oxtail and oily fish.
