Emilio Moro 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.
While you wait for the 'great' wines of Moro to reach their peak, you can already fully enjoy this fruity, youthful Tempranillo from Emilio Moro. The Finca Resalso comes from the (relatively) younger vines. In the glass, the wine has a cherry red color with purple hues. In the nose, the aroma and intensity of the wine stimulates the senses. Pure fruit enjoyment of strawberries, cherries, raspberry liquorice and black forest fruits. The Finca Resalso is lively, with a spicy touch and just enough structure due to the 4 months aging in French barriques. It is a very fine wine with a well-developed structure that makes it very pleasant to drink. The Resalso has an excellent price-quality ratio. This is a great wine with steaks, burgers, stews and the better charcuterie. In the April edition of Hubrecht Duijker , the Finca Resalso by Emilio Moro receives a favorable assessment and the predicate 'Recommended'.
Wine is like a living being that you have to understand and care for' is a quote by Emilio Moro after which a large winery within Ribera del Duero was named. The contemporary cellar, which replaced the old one in 2001, is located in the hamlet of Pesquera de Duero, 198 kilometers north of Madrid. Emilio's grandsons, Javier and José, are in charge and have a consistent quality policy. The grapes, all tinto fino (a regional variant of tempranillo) come from over 200 hectares at altitudes of 750 to 1000 meters. The youngest wine, which received four months of barrel rest, is called Finca Resalso. The delicious 2014 seduces with thick black fruit, including that of cassis, hints of licorice and bay leaf, a pinch of spice and very controlled wood.
