"Elegant and refined, this leaves behind the bombastic style of heavily extracted Ribera del Duero reds in favor of vibrantly fresh red fruit and a firm structure. It’s the simplest and most affordable bottling from Emilio Moro, produced from young vines, between five and 15 years old, ready to decant for a rustic roast lamb or fabada asturiana with chorizo."
" 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). Cherry-red colour with violet rim, and good depth. The nose is extraordinarily aromatic and intense, protagonised by ripe black fruits, mulberry and blueberry, mixed with dairy aromas like strawberry yoghurt. The subtle hint of oak manifests as cacao with touches of vanilla. On the palette it show well-structured tannins and balanced acidity. With a long and warm finish. Aged for 4 months in 100% French oak barrels.
Finca Resalso is the entry-level wine from Emilio Moro. It takes its name from the Finca Resalso vineyard, which was planted in the year of Emilio Moro's birth. The wine is 100% Tinto Fino from vines ranging from 5-15 years of age. It is aged four months in French oak.
The Moro family has been farming the same vineyards in the Ribera del Duero since 1932, the birth year of Emilio Moro (the patriarch) as well as the year in which the Finca Resalso vineyard was planted. For two generations, the grapes were sold on the bulk market. In 1988, current proprietor José Moro Espinosa invested the family’s entire savings into winery equipment and Bodegas Emilio Moro was born. The bodega joined the D.O. Ribera del Duero in 1989 and quickly established itself as one of the region’s leading producers of top quality wines. The winery is located at the top of a bend in the Duero River in the town of Pesquera del Duero, just to the Northwest of Peñafiel." ~ Winery notes
