Characteristics of San Román
San Román is a red wine from Toro produced by Bodegas Maurodos.
Leading this winery is Mariano García, a winemaker known for producing Mauro together with the prestigious Vega Sicilia winery, where he was also responsible for the development of 30 legendary vintages of their wines.
San Román is a varietal Tinta de Toro, a typical variety from Toro. The grapes come from different vineyards planted with old vines 45 years old at an altitude of 750 metres above sea level, with stony and sandy-clay soils.
The climate is an extreme and continental with very little rain, lots of sunshine and strong thermal contrasts between day and night, which favours the correct ripening of the grapes. Each plot is vinified separately.
San Román spends 24 months aging in barrels of French and American oak that are renewed by 20% with each vintage.
San Román is a deep, powerful and elegant Toro wine. A wine with a long history of aging in bottle.

San Román 2014 is a concentrated, powerful and elegant Toro wine. This year is distinguished by the good ripening and acidity of the grapes. A muscular wine, where the black fruit stands out with the spices of the Tinta de Toro and those of the barrel. The months it spends in barrels round this wine and give it finer tannins. Ideal to drink now or to save for a few years.
The 2013 vintage, rated as a very good one, began in a complicated way. In the early spring, in April and May, temperatures were low and there were heavy rains, significantly delaying the start of the growth cycle. This resulted in late flowering and therefore later ripening. Before the harvest, there was a considerable amount of rain, which produced an interspersed harvest.After a cold and rainy year, the profile of the wines they have produced are less concentrated than usual. Fresher and with a good acidity.

In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
Maurodos is probably one of the first wine projects that showed the extraordinary potential of the vineyards and wines of Toro. Maurodos, popularly known by its brand San Román, the name of its most emblematic wine, carries the signature of Mariano García, one of the most respected oenologists in Spain. He worked thirty years as the technical head of Vega Sicilia, before he started his own projects: the first one in Ribera del Duero with Bodegas Mauro in 1980, and a few years later, in 1997, in Toro, with Maurodos, where he has 100 hectares of vineyard, planted mostly with the variety Tinta de Toro and Grenache.
