Bodegas Mauro Mauro 2020
Bodegas Mauro "Mauro" is the winery's flagship wine. Elegant bouquet of fresh red berries and black fruit with balsamic and spicy nuances. The medium to full-bodied palate is dry with precise yet powerful tannins and a magnificent fresh feel. Savoury ripe red and black fruit flavours with hints of wet earth, black truffles, liquorice, mineral undertones and a real sense of terroir. Closes in a very long finish.
90% Tempranillo and 10% others. The fruit comes from the Tudela de Duero and Traspinedo vineyards in Castilla y León in Spain.
Bottling in April 2021 after 15 months of ageing in barrels and vats of French and American oak of different ages.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
- 93 POINTS
2019 was a mild and dry year with 20% less rain than 2018. The 2019 Mauro was selected from their 90 hectares of organically farmed vineyards and fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. It is mostly Tempranillo with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that adds freshness and floral aromas. It's a lighter and more approachable vintage than 2018, a more immediate wine, more approachable but in a way less complex."
