Lots of grape-skin character with hints of licorice and hot stones. Concentrated and rich, yet there's an underlying freshness. Polished tannins. 90% tempranillo with 10% grenache. Drink now.
James Suckling
The entry-level 2014 Prima is a blend of Tinta de Toro, 10% Garnacha and a little bit of white Malvasía. It matured in used barrique and oak vats to keep the fruit. 2014 is a cooler vintage, from a very balanced year and the wines show more freshness. This Prima keeps the primary fruit and feels young, but it has good depth and a very pleasant mouthfeel. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.

Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos

Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos

Bodegas Mauro sits just outside of the Ribera del Duero appellation, in the historic town of Tudela de Duero. Established in the 1970s by Mariano García, the former winemaker of the famous Vega Sicilia estate, he now owns two benchmark estates in Spain. With a rather small production of about 280,000 bottles a year, the 74-hectare estate is farmed organically preserving their grand terroir. Mauro produces three reds. Their forward-styled lavish Mauro. Their Mauro VS (Vendimia Seleccionada), which is crafted by only the best vines and experiences a longer ageing period. And lastly, their all-encompassing single-vineyard cuvée, Terreus, which is produced only in the best years. By the mid-1990s, García decided to open up another winery in Toro named Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos. Today, it is one of the most influential estates in the region. Planted with Garnacha and Tinta de Toro, this 80-hectare property produces two wines. San Román is a structured, opulent wine, the tannins and oak build in the bottle making five or six years of ageing a worthwhile bet. While their second label, Prima, offers a typical full-bodied, and dark-fruited style at a great value. ...

Grapes

A very popular variety in both southern France and Spain, Grenache used to be the second most planted red variety in the world in the 19th century, but was later passed by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium-thick skinned, it tends to produce wines that are rich in alcohol, opulent in red berried fruits with low-moderate acidity. Despite its full-bodied nature, its wines can often be delicate and in some cases be reminiscent of Pinot Noir. It is the backbone to most wines of the Southern Rhône (such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas) but also features in northern Spain. Claimed as the same variety as Sardinian Cannonau, it is theorised that Grenache made its way to Spain and then France during the time when the Kingdom of Aragón ruled over Sardinia (1297-1713). ...

Castilla y León

Castilla y León

Castilla y León produces an impressive variety of wines including those from some of the most famed Denominaciones de Origen. Among these lies the renowned Ribera del Duero, which crafts fine reds of Tempranillo (also known as Tinta del País, Tinto de Toro and Tinto Fino); but also Rueda which is better known for their whites made from Viura, Sauvignon and Verdejo; while Toro produces strong, powerful reds along the Portuguese border. Located on the northern half of the central Iberian Plateau which sits between 700 - 1000 meters, this region stretches from the north coast all the way down to Madrid, and to the west, Castilla y León borders Portugal. Here the varied landscapes and climatic conditions make this possibly the most eclectic wine region in all of Spain. Spotted with far-reaching valleys, great flat plains and steep mountain chains, Castilla y León is home to several unique micro-climates that produce a wide array of wines that cater to all tastes. There are the exuberant reds of Toro and the refined whites of Rueda, but also the Cava of Arando de Duero and the world class reds of Ribera del Duero – making Castilla y León a leader in Spain’s quality wines. ...
