    Bodegas Mauro, Spain
    Bodegas MAURO is located in the Duero river valley at Tudela, a few miles to the south of the city of Valladolid. Because of this location, and the presence of a few old Grenache vines, Mauro does not benefit from the Ribera del Duero control of origin. No matter, the wine has established a world wide reputation without the distinction ... rather like the "Super Tuscan" reds from Italy. Mauro was created in the 1970's by Luciano Suarez, an architect, specialised in the restoration of medieval monuments, and Felix Choque, cousin of Mariano Garcia, the former winemaker at Vega Sicilia. Their objective : to rival the best of Spain. In this they are very successful. The vineyards cover 30 hectares with 90% Tempranillo, 5% Grenache, and 5% Syrah. Many of the vines are 60 years old and more. Vinification and ageing is in the classic French manner with maturation in new or 1 year old French and American oak casks. Further ageing takes place in bottle before release after at least three years ; all this under the watchful eye of Mariano Garcia and his sons. The style is classic Ribera del Duero with a dark rich colour, a gorgeous bouquet showing great class, and a perfect balance between the oak and rich black fruit. On the palate Mauro has a smooth style, silky texture and the distinction to rival a great Bordeaux Classified Growth. Only about 90 000 bottles are made. Demand is so strong that each vintage is usually sold out within 3 months of release. The bodega has recently purchased vineyards in nearby Toro. The first vintage was the superb 1997.

    Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

    Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
