"Bright violet color. Spicy dark berries on the nose, with a suave floral quality building in the glass. Round and seamless in texture, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of smokiness. Shows more red fruit character on the finish, with silky tannins coming in late to add grip. This fruit-driven Ribera is pretty delicious right now. -- Josh Raynolds"
" 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
