2019 Emilio Moro Malleolus de Valderramiro
This wine is named in honor of the Pago de Valderramiro, a piece of clay soil planted in 1924 with 4 generations of viticultural tradition dedicated to preserving the essence and personality of a vineyard that represents the history of Emilio Moro. The clay soils allow us to obtain the purest character of our Tinto Fino wine and all its power, structure and great intensity, giving full attention to the "terroir". The vegetative cycle of 2019 was preceded by the April rains. However, from the middle of spring to the end of summer, the year was characterized by scarce rainfall and higher than expected temperatures. The harvest started after a few rainy days, which helped to balance the composition of the grapes and resulted in a year of exceptional quality and optimal health.
In the Valderramiro there are 4 hectares with the oldest sticks of this winery — planted in 1924, so almost 100 years old — which were used exclusively for this cuvée. In addition, the wine fermented in (new) American oak and was aged for another 18 months in (new) French 'barricas'. The result is a wine that can age for a long time. Brilliant cherry red, lots of ripe fruit on the nose (black cherry), mocha and a hint of fume oak. The taste is ripe, concentrated and velvety, with chocolate, blueberry and minerals. This favorite wine of the King of Spain is often served at festive dinners of the royal house.
