Winery's evaluation of the vintage
2018 was a cool and rainy year with a good harvest. Buds appeared late on the vines but a quick flowering was followed by an excellent fruit set. The grapes ripened unhurriedly ensuring a rich and well-structured fruit. These conditions plus the splendid blending of red Grenache and other varieties gave this vintage of Prima a particularly rounded character. On tasting, it leaves us in no doubt that it is clearly a classic Toro wine.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
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.
Impressive young Toro
Interesting, well-balanced and appealing blend of Tinta de Toro and Garnacha. A big, complex fruity Toro wine, it has a light touch of sweetness in its character that makes it very, very drinkable.
Youn but good Toro
A young wine from Mariano Garcia, the one who makes San Román. I used to think that Prima was a bit too young, but with the vintage, the wine has grown and is a really good wine.
Mycket bra vin
Ett härligt och prisvärt vin. Strävt, balanserat och smakrikt. Bra tanniner. Mycket gott.

San Román Bodegas y Viñedos

NOTE: The vineyards with which Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos work, both their own and those of collaborating winegrowers, have organic certification . However, even...
