K&L Notes

Bodegas Mauro was founded by Mariano Garcia, the head winemaker at Vega Sicilia from 1968 to 1998, in 1978. The winery and vines are located in the village of Tudela del Duero, just outside the official lines of the Ribera del Duero DO. In 2001 his son Eduardo joined him on the production side after working at Cos d’Estournel or Ridge Vineyards. He started to change vineyard practices to organics and they have slowly changed the elevage, introducing large fudres and reducing the amount of new oak. A blend of Tempranillo and small amount of Syrah, which is well suited to warm stony Calcerous clay, this is Ribera del Duero with a twist, like a super-Tuscan. That little addition of Syrah tempers the Tempranillos tannins creating a richer more accessible wine.

    The Mauro is all things Ribera del Duero, just not in name. Deeply rich and powerful blackcurrant fruit surround a sumptuous and lithe palate interspersed with notes of graphite, anise and red flowers. This is deep, yet detailed. Would be great in a few more years but if served soon, a slow roasted leg of lamb covered in Moroccan spices seems like just the thing.
