Why we like it ...
Mauro for us raises emotions. So far all the wines made by Mariano Garcia have won our hearts. The way he produces wines is just our cup of tea. Very nicely structured with a nice full body providing you with a long finish that will put a smile on your face. We enjoy this with good friends, bread and olive oil.
What does it taste like ...
Mauro is filled with intense black and blue fruits, nearly overripe but always stepping away from that precipice. The power of the fruit is matched by the intensity of the oak, but everything coheres and finds balance. The finish is lengthy, with vanilla, black fruits, and some racy red fruits as well.
The wine is elegant and voluptous on the palate, showing great roundness and a smooth character.
What is it made of ...
