The wine

Telmo Rodríguez was one of the pioneers in the discovery of Garnachas from the Sierra de Gredos, an area which gives rise to delicious wines, so different from one another, depending upon the orientation and especially the soil composition.

The Pegaso line enables us to enjoy two very distinct wines: Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra, a particularly mineral Garnacha, with earthy and pencil lead notes, and exhibiting plenty of ripe fruit and aromas redolent of the countryside and aromatic plants... and Pegaso Granito, with another sort of minerality, more balsamic and distinctly floral. Two honest wines, two wines which allow us to recognise the richness of the Garnacha, the potential of this area close to Madrid, and some very fine work indeed.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

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.
