The river Duero takes a good few loops as it meanders its way through Spain and tucked into one of these loops is the town of Tudela de Duero. In 1982, when the DO of Ribera del Duero was established, there were no vineyards here so the local mayor saw no point in getting his town included within the DO boundaries. That means that Mauro can grow whatever grapes it chooses; given that it’s a dry, sun-baked landscape wines from here are full and powerful.
Founder Mariano García started here in 1978 and has for some years now been assisted by his equally able son Eduardo. Mauro uses no pesticides or herbicides and only native yeasts: there’s great attention to detail here, and it shows in multi-layered wines of balance and weight, full of black-fruit and chocolate flavours.
Mauro is a wine of energy and tension: it shows how good tempranillo (with 10% syrah) can be. Two further styles are made: Vendimia Seleccionada (VS) a rich, layered tempranillo with some three years in semi-used French and American oaks; and the awesome, headline-grabbing Terreus made from the fruit of a single hectare of century-old tempranillo.
