Art. # 3890

The Mavrud from the vineyard of Edoardo Miroglio in Elenovo has been emblematic of the qualities of this variety in our country. Interestingly, it was the Italian agronomist Alberto Larosa who started to work on the vineyards with this most Bulgarian variety. The results are excellent, and the Mavrud cellar is already turning out some of their most exciting wines.

Mavrud Elenovo is a deep purple colour, vibrant and beautiful. Elegant and ripe nose with noble development, with hints of raspberry confit, chocolate and cinnamon. The body is juicy, smooth and rounded with ripe tannins and a noble finish.

More about this wine

Edoardo Miroglio

Edoardo Miroglio

Edoardo Miroglio comes from a family with a tradition in the textile business and is a native of Piedmont. He owns a winery in Italy: Tenuta Carretta in Alba, which makes first-class Barbaresco DOC and Barolo DOC. Edoardo's idea is to combine the wine traditions of Piedmont and the Thracian lowlands, where they are no less ancient. Italian and Bulgarian specialists take care of over 220 hectares of vineyards and the production of wine from them, led by the famous oenologist Marco Monchiero. The winery is a unique building in the shape of a spiral, which descends three floors underground in the village of Elenovo (not far from Stara Zagora). The wide range of vineyards includes some of the most popular Bulgarian varieties - Mavrud and Rubin. Miroglio wines are very fine and characterful and are served in fine restaurants, including Michelin-starred restaurants.

Thracian valley

Thracian valley

In this region, which includes Southern Bulgaria, the climate is temperate continental protected from northern winds thanks to Stara Planina, with good rain distribution. It includes the central parts of the Thracian lowland and parts of Sakar. Most of the red grape varieties are concentrated in this area. Mavrud, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Muscat, Pamid and others are grown. The climatic conditions of the region favour the production of rich, dense, memorable red wines, especially from the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud. Good wines from the local variety Mavrud are especially valued for their aroma and taste of small red fruits, spices and herbs.

Mavrud

Mavrud

Mavrud is a dark-skinned grape variety of Bulgarian origin, widely planted in the Thracian valley, more precisely in the region of Asenovgrad. The grape’s name is derived from the Greek mavro, meaning black, and the wines it produces usually are of an inky colour. They also have pronounced tannins and excellent acidity, with stewed-fruit flavours on the palate with some herbal characteristics. It is no easy task to produce wine from Mavrud alone, but whoever succeeds creates a wine that certainly does not lack character.
