Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

San Román Malvasía is a barrel-aged white wine made by Maurodos with the Malvasía variety in the D.O. Toro (Castilla y León).

Mariano García from Bodegas Mauro started the Maurodos project in 1995 in the Toro Denomination of Origin, in the towns of Pedrosa del Rey, Villaester and San Román de Hornija. This project mostly works with the Tinta de Toro variety, but does include other varieties like the Garnacha and Malvasía.

San Román Malvasía comes from vines aged over 60 years old, planted on sandy soils and lying 700 metres above sea level. Although not officially certified, these strains are cultivated using organic and ecological farming and no herbicides or pesticides.

When the San Román Malvasía grapes reach the winery, they are selected and destemmed. It is then left to macerate with skins for 12 hours and after being racked through decantation, it is transferred to 500 litre barrels for fermentation. Finally, it is allowed to age for 10 months with periodic movement of the lees.

San Román Malvasía is the first white wine produced by this Toro winery using old Malvasía Castellana vines, which are also known as Doña Blanca. A rounded, enveloping and fragrant wine.

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.
