2019 Emilio Moro Malleolus Sancho Martin
Bodegas Emilio Moro "Malleolus Sanchomartin" Ribera Del Duero is a red wine from the Castilla y Leon region in Spain. The absolute winner in Emilio Moro's range. Pricey, but still a godsend compared to many grands crus classés from Bordeaux of the same quality. The Sancho Martin comes from a vineyard of only 0.84ha, so supply is extremely limited. The Sancho Martin is one of the most sublime tempranillo wines from Bodegas Emilio Moro. Named in honor of the Pago de Sanchomartín, a vineyard located in Pesquera de Duero, which was planted in 1944. It is a wine of great variety, but with the personality of the limestone soils. It stands out as a powerful, elegant and persistent wine.
The 2019 vegetative cycle was preceded by the April rains. However, from mid-spring to the end of summer, the year was characterized by scanty rainfall and higher than expected temperatures. The harvest began 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.
The vineyard is located on terroir of a mixture of sandy clay, marl and limestone. Both the malolactic fermentation and aging are carried out in new French oak barrels. Maturation takes 18 months. In the glass the wine has an intense, deep cherry red color. Complex and elegant aromas with subtle, floral notes that include liqueurs, mulberry and blackcurrant. The balsamic notes of the oak are perfectly integrated into the ensemble of the wine. Warm and sweet on the palate with balanced acidity and great quality of tannins that caress the palate. The wine has a warm aftertaste that lasts forever. Only around 2,000 bottles of this great 2019 Sancho Martin were made.
