2019 Emilio Moro
This Bodega from Ribera de Duero 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 cuvees are wines from two "Pagos" - individual vineyards with very old vines and extremely low yields.
The Emilio Moro is a 100% Tempranillo and comes from different vineyards of different soil types (clay, lime and stone) of 25-35 years old. In Spanish terminology this is called a Crianza (the Malleolus is a Reserva). The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel barrels with 15 days 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. At first it is a bit closed, but after gentle rolling, beautiful and concentrated aromas of plums, ripe black cherries and fine herbs enter 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 great price.
