RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

This is very young and primary, with harmonious tannins but in need of time in bottle to deliver what's inside. As with the other 2018s, this has complexity and depth; the wine is juicy, and the tannins are not hard. There is great balance and superb aging potential.

PRODUCER

Bodegas Mauro

Bodegas Mauro was established in 1978 in Valladolid. The 150 acres of vineyards produce about 240,000 bottles annually. The wines are a blend of mostly Tinta de Toro and some Grenache. The prestige cuvee is the Terreus, which is produced only in outstanding vintages. But all the wines usually earn ratings in the 90s from reviewers.

REGION

Spain, Castilla-Leon

Castilla y León, as this region is called in Spanish, is a large region in northeastern Spain that includes nearly twenty percent of Spain’s total land. It encompasses eight provinces and five appellations. The best known of the appellations is Ribera del Duero, though the appellations Toro and Bierzo are also gaining international reputations for fine wine. The region is largely a high, flat plateau and red grapes account for much of what is grown in Ribera del Duero. The other appellations are Rueda, known for white wine, and Cigales. Bierzo is known for the full flavored white wine Godello.
