Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
On June 7, Atlanta wine shop Capital City Package announced the availability of a stunning 96 point Spanish red wine available on pre-sale. The Bodegas Y Vinedos Maurodos 2009 San Roman is considered the “rock star” brother of Ribera del Duero. This exciting region of Toro creates a similar style of wines, but the Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grape grows darker, stronger skinned, and can produce wines so concentrated and full of fruit, they will leave wine enthusiasts in heaven.
Rated a Chart Topping 96 Points from the Wine Advocate, the 2009 San Roman offers a very seductive bouquet with luscious red berry fruit like raspberry and wild strawberry infused with crushed violets that open with aeration. The palate is full-bodied and very well-balanced and has ripe succulent tannins and plush blueberry and black cherries forming the core. This is followed by a silky, ripe, sensual, velvety smooth finish. Modern in style, but extremely well-crafted, this is a sensational, delicious Toro red.
This wine is available at Capital City Package at the pre-sale price of just $49.97.
Bodegas y Vinedos Maurodos is one of the leading lights of Toro. Founded in 1997 by former Vega Sicilia winemaker Mariano Garcia Fernandez, they own 60 hectares of vineyard in San Roman de Villaester and Hornija, mainly planted with Tinta de Toro and Garnacha, the average age of vines around 35 years interpolated with vines on un-grafted rootstock. The oak aging here is very prudent, with around 20 percent renewed each year, both French and American. The present winemaker is Mariano’s son Eduardo Garcia Montana, who trained in Bordeaux and Burgundy among other regions. These exceptional wines were suffused with personality, purity and a life-affirming sense of “controlled opulence” that put many a more expensive Toro wine in its shade and testifies to a Toro that truly does age with style and panache.
“From a land of breathtaking beauty and legendary wines, this truly remarkable and expressive 2009 San Roman is one you definitely won’t want to miss,” says Wine Consultant of Capital City Package, Kelly Drangin.
