Bodegas Mauro - Vino Tinto de la Tierra de Castilla y León 'VS' 2018


Notify me when this product is available:

The legendary maestro, Mariano Garcia founded Bodegas Mauro in 1980 as an homage to his father, in the historic town of Tudelo, by the River Duero in the province of Valladolid. Mariano García was the first degree-holding winemaker at Vega Sicilia, where his father had always worked and where he himself had been born.

Much credit for Ribera’s rapid ascent goes to Mariano García. Mariano Garcia is a very historical figure in Ribera.  He has been making wine in Ribera since 1968.

VS is a wine for aging with enormous concentration, complexity and elegance. Sourced from a selection of vines from two of Mauro's very best vineyards.

Energy, vivacity, excellent fruit weight and suave tannins are combined in a well-rounded wine, fine and enveloping, with multiple layers.

Mauro VS 2018 was bottled in February 2021 after 26 months in French oak barrels. One of the greats of the Duero in a magical vintage.

"I also tasted the 2018 VS, from a cooler and rainier year than 2017 and with an absence of frost, delivering a healthier crop with good natural concentration, finesse and harmony. This wine is sourced from two vineyards, and the grapes were fermented by vineyard in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for 26 months. 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. 43,362 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2021." - 96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
