Price indication from Parker is $ 50. The Mauro is a sparkling, garnet red wine with soft red fruit in the scent and tones of light wood aging, has a full but elegant taste, juicy, with velvety tannins and is beautifully balanced. The grapes for this wine are picked by hand and come from the vineyards at Tudela de Duero (30 ha) and Santibáñez de Valcorba (15 ha). Fermentation and maturation for 16 months on barriques of 225 liters of mainly French oak, 25% is of American oak. Every year 20% of the barrels are renewed. The aim is to make balanced wines with the right balance between fruit and wood. This 2015 Mauro is in a magnum bottle of 1.5 liters.

Bodegas Mauro was founded in 1980 by Mariano García, former winemaker of Vega Sicilia. His sons Alberto and Eduardo also work in the company, while cousin Isaac Fernández is the oenologist. The vineyards, a total of 45 ha, are located just outside (to the west) of the DO Ribera del Duero. A continental climate with Atlantic influences prevails on site. The soil contains a lot of lime and is very porous. The vines are 20 years old, in the Cueva Baja vineyard of 3 hectares almost 100 years. Some 210,000 bottles come out of the beautiful cellars every year, which indicates a low average return per hectare, namely 35 hl. Mauro has 950 barriques of 225 liters of mainly French oak, 25% of American oak. 20% is renewed annually. Mauro's reputation is huge, the wines belong to the international top. In 2004 a new Bodega was built just outside the busy town of Tudela de Duero to further improve quality and improve the accessibility of the company.
