Mauro Godello is a white wine produced by Bodegas Mauro in Tudela de Duero, V.T. Castilla y León.
Bodegas Mauro is the personal project of oenologist Mariano García, known for his position as a technical manager at Vega Sicilia for 30 years, co-founder of Aalto and producer of red wines of outstanding quality in Tudela de Duero (Valladolid).
A specialist in the production of great red wines, in 2013 he decided to make this exceptional white wine for the first time. One of the best Godello we can find on the market.
Mauro Godello is made from Godello grapes from plots located in Villafranca del Bierzo, at 700 metres of altitude, on a variety of soils: poor, sandy, with boulders and decomposed slate. The vine training system used is the espalier double cordon.
After being manually harvested, grapes are refrigerated and selected. Before fermentation, they undergo skin-contact maceration process for 12 hours at 8ºC. Once the grape is destemmed and crushed, it is pressed and then settled through a static process. Fermentation is carried out at a low temperature in 500-litre new and used barrels. Aged for 8 months in French oak barrels.
