2018 Emilio Moro Jeroboam (3 liter)
This Ribera de Duero Bodega in the heart of the DO is seen by the other top producers as one of the emerging new stars in the area. With 70 hectares of Tinto Fino from old autochthonous clones, Emilio moro makes wines that excel in purity, elegance and complexity. The top cuvées are wines from two "Pagos" - individual vineyards with very old vines and an extremely small yield.
The Emilio Moro is a 100% Tempranillo comes from different vineyards of different soil types (clay, lime and stone) of 25-35 years old. The wine is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel vats with 15 days of skin contact and for a year in oak barrels of which 50% French and 50% American oak. The Emilio Moro is dark in color and almost opaque. It is a bit closed at first, but after gentle rolling, beautiful and concentrated aromas of plums, ripe black cherries and fine herbs appear on the nose. The taste is full of refined tannins, balanced and with a nice acidity. You don't often come across such a good Ribera for such a good price. This Emilio Moro Jeroboam or a double magnum is in a 3 liter bottle packed in a nice box.
