Ca' di Mat Los Peros Albillo Real 2022

This Albillo Real comes from the Los Peros vineyard at 850 metres above sea level, featuring 70-year-old vines growing in granitic soils with red granite outcrops. The vineyard is part of a Special Protection Area for Birds and the Natura 2000 network. It is dry-farmed and organically cultivated, registered with the CAEM. The grapes are harvested manually in 15 kg crates, directly pressed, and the juice undergoes spontaneous fermentation and twelve months of ageing in French oak barrels without batonnage.

Compared to Valautín, Los Peros offers more fruity notes like lemon and overall is more mineral. On the other hand, it feels heavier and more oily. Give it some time to aerate, and it opens up, showing something interesting, though not overly complex — thanks to the combination of good fruit, texture, and some bitterness. A bit green, but who cares?

Ca' di Mat

Curro Bareño and Jesús Olivares, already experienced with challenging regions through their Fedellos do Couto and Peixes projects (which they later merged into simply Fedellos), embraced the challenge of Gredos, finding old vineyards. In 2016, they founded a new winery called Ca' di Mat, meaning House of Fools in Piedmontese, reflecting the founders' adventurous spirit and willingness to take risks in exploring and reviving lesser-known wine regions. Their approach hasn't changed much, with a focus on minimal intervention and respect for the environment, but here they reveal a different terroir.
