Grapes: 95% Tinta de Toro, 5% Garnacha
In a continental vintage of slow maturation and marked contrasts in temperatures, Prima has an impenetrable deep colour, intense and powerful in aromas with a suggestive minerality, fine tannins and bright red fruit.
"Bodegas Maurodos's 2008 Prima is 95% Tinta de Toro and 5% Garnacha aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak and bottled without filtration. Purple-colored, it displays a nose of cedar, spice box, violets, mineral, and blackberry. On the palate it is juicy, succulent, and concentrated, leading to a seamless finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.
