Bodegas Emilio Moro 'Malleolus' 2020

Product description

A historic wine with deep roots. “Malleolus” has meant a before and after in the Ribera del Duero denomination of origin, disassociating itself from the classification of wines by time in barrel to begin to value it by its vintage. “Malleolus”, hawthorn in Latin, the way they call the vineyards in Pesquera de Duero, is an elegant wine with a great personality and a perfect balance between maturity and freshness.

Very covered cherry red color, intense on the nose, highlighting ripe black fruits that gain intensity as the wine evolves in the glass. During the tasting, a fruity base is perceived, nuances of the typical aromas of Tempranillo and spicy notes characteristic of the great vintages of this brand. In the mouth it is voluminous, with ripe and silky tannins. The aftertaste is long and very persistent.

Its silkiness and elegance on the palate allow this Malleolus to pair with any roast or stew, making it one of the Ribera del Duero wines recommended by the public and critics.

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Dark ruby violet-colored in the glass, this wine has enticing aromas of orange peel, milk chocolate and black raspberry. Plush tannins and bright acidity wake up your mouth to flavors of ripe cherry, cranberry, anise frond and dried lavender.

96 Points - Decanter

Polished and fine, with high tones: keenness and grip colliding to mouthwatering effect. A nice burst of rosehippy clarity on a clean and cleansing finish. Diana Rollan: Fragrant, with plum, cherry compote, violets, cocoa and dried herbs. Elegant, lifted and complex, round silky tannins, mouthwatering and textured style, super-enjoyable.
