MATARROMERA GRAN RESERVA

Following the winemaking tradition of his Castilian ancestors, Carlos Moro made his dream come true and in 1988 founded the bodega Matarromera in Valbuena de Duero (Valladolid) with a clear goal in mind: the preparation of quality wines with the most advanced technology and thereby the take into account traditional preparation methods. At Grupo Matarromero, sustainability is very important and the Matarromera Group was chosen in 2007 by IESE [Institute of Higher Business Studies] as the most environmentally friendly organization in Spain. The winery is currently generating more energy than it uses.

The Matarromera Gran Reserva is only released in the special 24-month period in the best French and American oak barrels, medium to lightly toasted, to accentuate the already exceptionally intense blueberry aromas. It is ripe and then rested in the bottle for more than three long years, making it a real gem. The grapes for the Gran Reserva come from a single vineyard of the San Román lot. This is vineyard on a steep southern slope of the calcareous terraces eroded by the Douro. In the nose refined tones of ndic ink subtly paired with soft tones of clean leather and mild tobacco. The excellent palate has everything that makes a wine so special. Nice layers, good acidity with a beautiful persistence and elegant sweet and ripe tannins.

ABOUT GRUPPO MATARROMERA

Following the winemaking tradition of his Castilian ancestors, Carlos Moro made his dream come true and in 1988 founded the bodega Matarromera in Valbuena de Duero (Valladolid) with a clear goal in mind: the preparation of quality wines with the most advanced technology and thereby the take into account traditional preparation methods. The biggest challenge that Carlos Moro took was his choice of new barrels for maturing his wines, an initiative that was new in this region at the time. Another key to Matarromera's immediate success were the excellent vineyards in the middle of the "golden mile" of Ribera del Duero. Today, a quarter of a century later, Carlos Moro continues to design projects, and he continues to prepare more and more sophisticated wines. Matarromera's focus on quality wines comes from the vineyard itself. Thanks to the work started by Carlos Moro's ancestors, loving care for the vineyard has been a constant factor. No contagion in the Bodega but a good wine comes from a top vineyard.

At Grupo Matarromera, sustainability is very important and the Matarromera Group was chosen in 2007 by IESE [Institute of Higher Business Studies] as the most environmentally friendly organization in Spain. The winery is currently generating more energy than it uses. Every bodega of the Matarromera group is a sustainable building and designed to utilize natural lighting, to provide optimum insulation and to effectively use both rainwater and wastewater.
