Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Cartago Paraje del Pozo is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos in Villaester, D.O. Toro.

 

At the head of this winery, we find Mariano García, an oenologist known for being the creator of Mauro and for his work in the distinguished winery Vega Sicilia, where he was in charge of the production of 30 vintages of their legendary wines.

Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos has 100 hectares of vineyards in Toro, most of them planted with the Tinta de Toro and Grenache varieties, distributed among different farms between Villaester and San Román de Hornija. All of their vineyards have the organic certification, although they do not use it in any of their wines.

Their philosophy is to produce wines extracting the astounding potential of the soil and the particular expression of a historical area in the creation of reds.

 

Cartago Paraje del Pozo is a wine made from Tinta de Toro and 10% of other more aromatic varieties, which come from Cartago, a natural site where pastures and pine forests prevail on the banks of the Duero river, in the municipality of Castronuño. Within this area we can find the farm El Pozo, a plot of 5 hectares planted ungrafted in the 1970s. These vines are located at 700 metres of altitude on extremely sandy soils with clay in the deeper layers and very deficient levels of organic matter.

Harvest is performed by hand and grapes are selected in the actual vineyard. Once the harvest arrives at the winery, the grapes are destemmed, and after a soft crushing, they begin the alcoholic fermentation with local yeasts. The maceration lasts two weeks. It is aged for 36 months in new and used French oak barrels.

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.
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.
