Details
Bodegas Mauro is located in the village of Tudela del Duero, just outside the official lines of the Ribera del Duero DO. Founded by Mariano Garcia (who was the head winemaker at Vega Sicilia for over 30 years) he has been handing the reins over to his two sons, Eduardo and Alberto.  The entry level wine, simply called Mauro is predominately Tempranillo with just a touch of Syrah.  Full bodied with dense fruit, this has good lift and freshness to balance the fullness. A very classy and complex wine.

"The 2017 Mauro, from a very challenging year, feels like a real triumph over the conditions of the harvest, as they had some zones where they didn't have any frost. The wine feels complex and with moderate acidity. Furthermore, they now use 4,000-liter oak foudres for the Úlevage of part of the wine. This some tannins, and it has grip and balance, a chalky texture and a dry, serious finish. They did shorter macerations and managed to keep the freshness."
