Maturana Tinta 100%
Maturana Tinta is a very rare variety in Rioja. Viña Ijalba participated in its recuperation, and with it we produce a unique vin d’auteur, whose main attraction is its great potential. A profound, intense wine, spicy, with hints of black fruit. A wine which is a step away from a typical, traditional Rioja, but at the same time suggestive and striking.
