Bodegas Mauro was founded in 1978 in Tudela de Duero, in the west end of the Ribera del Duero, but does not belong to it, have their majority with tempranillo grape vineyard, but also use the syrah, using organic vineyard technique; feature chamber at the entrance of the grapes after harvest process and elaboration of musts for plots; their casks is renewed annually by 20%, with 75% French oak and 25% American. For this presentation brought two wines, it was:
Mauro started with the 2010, a 90% red and 10% syrah tempranillo, aged in oak for 16 months, has a bright cherry color, with an edging afresado, attractive, very good fruit intensity nose, gums, sweet, with very wood in the background, even some blue flowers in the mouth the wine is still a bit grabs, very marked tannins, medium body, does not keep the intensity on the palate showing on the nose, light and easy to drink, yet certainly will improve much; your web indicates that it was bottled in June of this year, I think at least it should be saved until June 2013 to see its true potential, the other wine we had was San Roman 2008, 100% grape bull Villaester and vineyards in San Román, aged for 24 months in French and American oak, cherry red color has a upper middle layer, garnet rim, dark as blood, the nose is marked much wood, some notes ash, with ripe fruit hidden in the mouth has very good body, creamy, dairy but also noticing its long aging in oak, good acidity and tannin marked, although pleasant, and leaving a good taste dairy at the end, in my opinion, will enough left over barrel.
