Label   Fact Sheet

Description: I tasted two vintages of the VS, and I ended up favoring the 2013 over the 2012. In fact I loved the 2013, which has to rank among my favorite recent vintages of this cuvée, perhaps in line with the 2010. - Wine Advocate


Publication Score Comments
Wine Spectator 93 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
A plush red, with an iron backbone. Ripe plum and currant flavors mingle with toasty and espresso notes, backed by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Has good density and balance, in the modern style. Tempranillo with Syrah. Drink now through 2025. 25,000 cases made
The Wine Advocate 94 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
The opulent and generous 2015 VS is the reserva style bottling from Mauro and is sourced from two Tinto Fino vineyards, one in Traspinedo planted 70 years ago and a younger one (15 years old) in Tudela de Duero. The grapes from two vineyards are fermented separately in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and the wines matured in French and American barriques for some 26 months. It's powerful, concentrated, round and long within the more elegant style of this wine in the Mauro portfolio. 37,570 bottles were filled in March 2018.
