Item Number: 31406
James Suckling 92
"Plum and blackberry aromas with hints of hot stones and dried flowers. Medium body, firm and silky tannins. Chewy, yet polished and pretty. Lovely young wine. Drink now."
Elaborated from 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes. The wine stays four months in French oak barrels before bottling.
Intense cherry red color with violet tones typical of his youth. The aroma is intense and very concentrated, the hallmark of this vintage of 2017. The black fruits stand out with an optimum maturity without reaching the jam, the wood notes are subtle and well integrated. In the mouth it has a good body of ripe tannin but alive and with a balanced acidity that favors the passage through the mouth.
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.
