Reviews of purchase "Mauro", 2017
Wine dense cherry color with purple trim around the edge of the glass.
Elegant, sensual taste of the wine reveals intense and powerful fruit tones accompanied by ripe tannins. Pleasant acidity gives the wine a wonderful freshness.
Distinct aroma of red fruit notes complement menthol, licorice, smoke and spice.
Recommended to decant the wine an hour before use. "Mauro" will be a great addition to most meat dishes, especially good it is combined with a rabbit with garlic, roast pork or lamb, game, grilled tuna, as well as with mature cheeses and mushroom risotto. Wine will be a decent pair of baked white meat and grilled red meats and sausages.
Elegant wine "Mauro", is an attractive, rich aroma and complex, perfectly balanced, juicy taste, created from the Spanish Tempranillo with the addition of Syrah. Grapes grown on light limestone and clay-limestone soils in an area that is prone to sudden changes in temperature in the daytime and nighttime periods. Winter 2011 was rather dry. Spring from March to May was the warmest in the last few years, the budding period took place in the absence of frost. Mild temperatures in August helped the outstanding ripening of grapes and getting more yield compared with 2010. In the manufacture of wine Mauro berries completely separated from the ridges. For 2-3 weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks produced alcoholic fermentation and maceration of the mash. Then drink 16 months aged in barrels of various ages from French oak wood. The wine was bottled in June 2013, the potential for wine storage - until 2021.
