Winemaker Notes

The 2010 vintage is considered to be of exceptional quality andbalance. Prima offers refined, concentrated fruit and is fresherthan ever, with lower yields than in 2009 mainly due to occasionalfrosts during the spring. The cool September nights have preserved excellent acidity and mature tannins thanks to a perfect end to maturation with sunny and dry weather.

Blend: 90% Tinta de Toro, 10% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
While this is a bit scratchy and rugged up front, that's Toro in a nutshell. In the mouth, things are built like a brick house, while flavors of cassis and berry come with a medicinal note and chocolaty richness. Licorice, pepper and more chocolate flavor define the finish on this stout Tinta de Toro. Drink through 2018.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This polished red exhibits harmonious flavors of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and mineral, with well-integrated tannins and fine acidity. Not showy, but retains depth and focus. Tinta de Toro and Garnacha.

Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos, Spain
Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos Winery Image
Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos owns 55 hectares in the villages of Villaester and San Roman de Hornija, planted mainly with Tinta de Toro, which come from the same family as Tempranillo, but adapted to Toro over centuries. This adaptation has lead to smaller berries which in turn lead to deeper color and more intense aroma and structure than typical of Tempranillo from other regions. It is possible to separate two different soil areas, in Villaester the soil has sand and clay with some gravels, while in San Roman the soil is more stony. Grapes mature sooner in San Roman than Villaester. The vines range in age up to 70 years old and are pruned to grow as bushes rather than on vertical trellises. On the vines the grapes hang low under a rounded canopy of leaves that protects them from scorching summer temperatures. This type of pruning concentrates the flavor of the grapes as it naturally limits the yield of grapes for each vine.

Spain's remote, high elevation Spanish wine zone between the regions of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero produces intense, full-bodied reds made from Tempranillo, locally called Tinta de Toro. This local variant has adapted to the region’s climatic extremes and recognizing its potential, top producers from Ribera del Duero and Rioja have invested heavily in its vineyards.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
