2018 Bodega Matarromera Crianza, Ribera del Duero, Spain

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, what a joy it is to discover it for the first time! Ripe black fruits and soft rosemary and clove spices. Intense, tasty, and very, very long-lasting. Persistence and balance.



Its first vintage, 1994, was awarded the title of Best Wine in the World at an international competition organized by the Spanish Wine Inter-professional Organization (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 characterized by its calcareous-clay soil and harsh climate with large temperature fluctuations.

Between the ripeness of the fruit and its aging process in barrels. It settles in selected barrels of French and American oak, fine-grained and soft-toasted, to respect the expression of the fruit to the maximum. After its aging, this Matarromera wine is bottled, where it completes its aging process until it is ready for tasting.


Matarromera Essence is the result of the enthusiasm, commitment, and patience of its creator Carlos Moro. In his words: 'Wineries have to be flexible, dynamic and modern companies, but without losing the essence of what we have treasured all through our lives'. His constant quest for excellence required adapting the facilities in order to guarantee a bright future. This is how the ambitious challenge of expanding and renovating the emblematic Matarromera winery began in 2018, backed by the commitment to respect its values in order to continue leading the future based on respect for its essence. For the Matarromera Essence.
