Emilio Moro Tempranillo 2018
Bodegas Emilio Moro is one of the oldest leading quality producers in Ribera del Duero. The history of the family goes back 3 generations. 1st generation Emilio Moro was born in 1891 and 2nd generation Emilio Moro in 1932. Both were born in a viticulture environment surrounded by vineyards and grew up treading grapes and racking wine in their native village of Pesquera de Duero, in the province of Valladolid. Emilio Moro taught his son, Emilio how to make wine but also to love it and he taught his children, Rubi, Jose, Fabiola, and Javier. The winery is currently run by the third generation while the fourth is beginning to join the Family.
The vineyards were grafted with the purest clone of Tinto Fino, commonly known as Tempranillo, recovered from the oldest vineyards that the family owns, Valderramiro and Resalso. Currently the family owns more than 200 hectares. They are located between 2,400 to 3,000 feet of elevation.
“Wine is art. If you listen, it speaks to you, it tells you when it needs to work, when to rest. It’s like a living being that needs to be understood and cared for”. D. Emilio Moro
Winemaker Notes... Elegant and subtle, a low production volume which has brought out the best essences of the grape. It’s a powerful, balanced wine with exceptional elegance. The aromas of Tempranillo have been refined through the ageing process and it has notes of wood in the background and the personality of the variety. In the palate, it is a reflection of the nose: strong and powerful with mellow and refined tannins.
91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate... I like the balance of the eponymous 2018 Emilio Moro, which achieved full-ripeness and development of aromas and flavours in a cooler vintage. Here, the wines are selected by vine age, and this comes from vines that are between 15 and 25 years of age. The oak is there but in synchrony with the fruit.
