The wine

San Roman figures among the great wines of Toro. What else could we expect from a great winemaker like Mariano García! It proves and confirms that today's Toro wines bear no similarity to those strong, rough, harsh wines of times past. This is elegant, fragrant and sophisticated. A classy wine, one of those we so often describe as feminine.

Its cherry colour with a purple rim, fairly dense, will tinge the glass and begin to captivate us with its aromas, slowly unfurling, just like a peacock unfurling its majestic plumage under the gaze of admiring onlookers. Aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries, always lush ripe fruit, violet petals, hints of liquorice, a very pleasant menthol touch and wafts of dry earth... It is a wine with a marked mineral character.

On the palate it is extremely fruit-forward, with dark fruit, and it has impressive structure, with sweet and very ripe tannins. Its passage through the mouth is silky, with a more notable presence of ageing notes on the palate than the nose, always very well-integrated. It is long, exceedingly long, with great balance. Once again: this is a classy wine, powerful and with a long life ahead of it.

Decant it at least half an hour beforehand, then relax and enjoy it. If possible, put a couple of bottles by to have in a few years’ time, and your patience will be amply rewarded.

San Román Bodegas y Viñedos

San Román Bodegas y Viñedos

Bodegas San Román (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...
