Product Description

Literally, the second wine of Matallana, Telmo makes M2 in a deliberately 'feminine' style, for ease of early access, but also as a style preference for better representation of Tinto Fino's (Ribera's native family of Tempranillo) more subtle side. Basically, Telmo's position is that it is a delicate grape variety, and that big, extracted blockbusters are not the most sympathetic or appropriate style. Really wonderful fruit such as that used in Matallana and Pingus can handle new barriques and still end up as a subtle, perfumed wines, but most often Tinto Fino requires more sublte handling. For M2, this means new and one-year old oak, but based on 600l and larger formats, for subtle impregnation with, rather than domination by oak. Resultantly, M2 shows Tempranillo's naturally juicy, velvety fruit and cloud of heady back-palate perfume to great advantage.- Importer Note

Everything about this wine is singing in harmony. The nose is fresh and pure, with raspberry, plum, spice and youthful rubbery aromas. The palate is elegant and impeccably balanced, while flavors of vanilla and coconut announce ample oak, with toasty, peppery plum and raspberry flavors waiting in the wings. Power, precision and elegance are draped all over the finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. MICHAEL SCHACHNER, Wine Enthusiast
