Telmo Rodriguez Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra 2020


In Stock

“There is a lot of finesse in the 2020 Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra, with a fine texture and almost powdery, elegant tannins, and it transmits a sensation of harmony. It’s perfumed and floral and has more red than black fruit. It’s medium to full-bodied, precise, clean, tasty and long. It’s ripe, but the alcohol (15%) is completely unnoticeable. In fact, it feels less ripe than the Granito from 2020 that I tasted next to it. 4,104 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2022. Drink: 2023-2030. 96 points

Telmo Rodríguez has a project in Gredos, and I tasted mostly 2020s with winemakers Marc Isart and vineyard manager Aitor Fernández. They compare 2020 with 2016 and 2021 to fresher wines like 2018, but with the effect of the frost from late April, and the wines have less color than the 2020s and 2022s.
