What does this wine taste like?
Mauro is a serious wine. It started out somewhat shy but has created a more floral and aromatic profile with every year that passes. A powerful wine, but also delicate and balanced, with a wonderful combination of depth and complexity. It is a fragrant wine, with magnificent red fruits and freshness, and more length than width.
Grainy tannins add a noteworthy dynamism, alongside a moderate acidity and a natural concentration in the nose where primary aromas can still be appreciated. A gripping wine with a chalky texture and a dry finish.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
A friend of mine was gifted a bottle of Mauro by a wine dealer pal in San Sebastian. "Try this." was the message. Knowing nothing about the wine, we ate it over a lunch at my place. Pretty much knocked our socks off. A little research after, and it became clear that this is a really terrificly made wine by a proper Ribero del Duero legend. Don't be fooled by the audacious descriptor of 'Red Wine' on the label. This is more than likely to be a subtle jibe at RDD appelation that was set up after Mariano Garciá bought the vineyards for Mauro, just outside the boundary limit. Top wine.
One of the best
Mauro is difficult to get but is worth of hunting! One of the best Ribeiro del Dueros in its price class. Full bodied, a lot of fruit, balanced. Recommended!
Excellent wine, consistently good every year. One of the best i its region. Will be buting more of it for sure.
Very interesting wine
This wine has a good body and a perfect balance between the fruit and the oak, a great potential to age
Need to wait another year or so but this Will be excellent

Bodegas Mauro is the first family-run winery under Mariano García to lie in Castile-Leon (San Román Bodegas y Viñedos falls within the Toro denomination) and is named in honour of his father, Mauro García. Founded in 1980, two years before the Ribera del Duero D.O. was established, Bodegas Mauro was excluded from the Denomination of Origin for strictly adhered to reasons of geographical delineation at the time it was set up, when historical arguments...
