The 2012 Mauro is produced with 90% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah from different vineyards in the villages of Tudela de Duero, Traspinedo, Santibanez and Quintanilla de Onesimo, where the soils are rich in chalk and clay, with sandy and stony parts. The wine matured in oak barrels for some 16 months and was finally bottled in June 2014. Itâ€™s fresher than the 2011, mixing aromas of red and black fruit. The oak is well-integrated, with good balance and a certain elegance. The palate is medium-bodied, with good acidity and highly-polished, fine tannins. A great version of Mauro. Drink 2015-2018.
Mauro continues producing powerful, concentrated, well-oaked and true to their birthplace reds, but the big news is that with the 2013 they will release their first ever white wine! It will be a Godello from grapes grown at El Bierzo, but it will be sold, like their reds, as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon.
