The Producer

Bodegas Mauro

Bodegas Mauro

Bodegas Mauro's not inconsiderable pedigree is underlined by the fact that its founder, Mariano García, used to be the chief winemaker at Vega Sicilia.

His sons, Albert and Eduardo, now captain the ship and do so with great aplomb, exploiting their old Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) vines with great skill. Interesting limestone-dominated terroir, allied to vinification in French and American oak, has engendered a truly exceptional range of wines in the wine appellation of Toro.

The Grape

Tempranillo/Tinto Fino

Tempranillo/Tinto Fino

A high quality red wine grape that is grown all over Spain except in the hot South - it is known as Tinto Fino in Ribera del Duero, Cencibel in La Mancha and Valdepenas and Ull de Llebre in Catalonia. Its spiritual home is in Rioja and Navarra where it constitutes around 70% of most red blends.

Tempranillo-based wines tend to have a spicy, herbal, tobacco-like character accompanied by ripe strawberry and red cherry fruits. It produces fresh, vibrantly fruit driven "jovenes" meant for drinking young. However Tempranillo really comes into its own when oak aged, as with the top Riojas  where its flavours seem to harmonise perfectly with both French and American oak, producing rich, powerful and concentrated wines which can be extraordinarily long-lived.

In Ribera del Duero it generally sees less oak - the exception being Vega Sicilia where it is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and then aged for an astonishing 7 years in oak and is unquestionably one of the world`s greatest wines.
