Bodegas Terreus Pago de Cueva Bajo 2009
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Since 1978, Bodegas Mauro has been characterized for producing quality red wines with vocation for ageing and limited production. Wines which are balanced, opulent and sensual, which express the identity of the terroir, the characteristics of the grape varieties and personality of the wine maker.
On the Spanish wine scene, Mauro produces wines with a modern style but with roots, devoted to tradition and with signs of self identity which make them recognizable.
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.
