Review

Prima is like nectar concocted from cherries and red and black fruits. Lively and densely coloured, and fresh on the nose, it has a vibrant character, a touch of the Mediterranean, which is surely due to that small amount of Garnacha.

Having the character of a Toro wine but also with that Garnacha “spark”, its fruit complexity stands out in particular, the very open aromas, its accessibility: aromas of red fruit, dark fruit, fresh spices, scents of pine forests, subtle smoky notes, hints of barely ripe black olives, citrus and sweet notes from the fruit itself, all on a mineral background.

It may well be delicate on the nose, but it is seamless on the palate: meaty and intense, its smoothness and balance are astounding and captivating; it is very easy to drink, its intense acidity ensures it glides easily over the palate leaving a lovely velvety feeling, with floral hints, of rose petals, fascinating and enchanting. This is a little treasure, although having seen its price and knowing that it has been aged for more than a year in barrel (12-14 months), a great little treasure! Showing very subtle ageing notes (fine wood, chocolate, damp leather), which return for the aftertaste, and those really refreshing citrus undertones, this is a complete wine and suitable for all consumers.

It couldn't be any other way, a modern wine, rich in fruit, from the hand of a master, Mariano García.

Great Value Toro

Another good vintage of this ever reliable red wine from toro region

by: Fernando (2 Jan) - Vintage 2017

Equilibrado y peculiar

La conjunción entre el sabor clásico de la uva tinta de Toro con la fuerza particular de la garnacha dan a este tinto un sabor peculiar que lo identifica como un excelente vino de la denominación de origen, con un toque especial muy agradable.

Lovely balance

This is an interesting wine from Bodegas Mauro in the Toro region. It is a blend of Tinta de Toro and Grenache grapes, the latter giving an extra zing to the flavour. It is aged in barrels for a year or more so has developed a complex and pleasing density of character. Very easy on the palate, this wine is exceptional value for money.

Maurodos

Maurodos

Maurodos is, to put it another way, Bodegas Mauro in the Toro denomination. Mariano García (Bodegas Mauro, Aalto) started this project in 1995, with vineyards of mainly Tinta de Toro grapes (90%) but also Garnacha, in Pedrosa del Rey, Villaester and San Román de Hornija. NOTE: The vineyards with which Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos work, both their own and those of collaborating winegrowers, have organic certification . However, even though all the wine comes from organic grap...
