Product Description
Details

Produced from vines 15 to 50 years of age belonging to the DO Toro, Prima is the entry-level Spanish red wine from Bodegas Maurodos.

It is made principally from Tinta de Toro, enlivened by a 15% Grenache. The grapes were separately vinified in different kinds of containers, depending on the specificic characteristics of each plot.

Then this red wine from Toro was aged in French and American oak vats and barrels for 14 months. Prima 2018 was bottled in May 2020, after which it rested in the cellar until the end of the year.

Aerate this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Prima has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This expressive blend of Tinta de Toro & Grenache delights us with aromas of blackberries, plums and cranberries combined with notes of flowers, wet undergrowth, dry earth, toast and spices.

Palate

Smooth and fresh, this red wine from Bodegas Maurodos has plenty of local character, and at the same time a great drinkability. Spices, blue flowers, aromatic herbs and wild berries. Polished tannins, very good acidity and long finish with some toasted and spicy remembrances.

Our personal opinion

The worthy little brother of the mighty San Román, Prima 2018 is a gentle, sort of Toro-meets-the-Mediterranean red wine.

Great buy. A bold wine, but very honest and well made.

The producers of this winery also craft San Román, which I find the best wine from Toro. I decided to go for the entry-level wine and was not disappointed. Not so big and muscular as the average Toro. Grenache enlivens the wine and makes it delicious.
