Winemaker's Notes:

Cherry-red in colour with red highlights in the final layer showing its ageing in oak for 24 months. Deep bright medium layer. In the nose, spicy aromas appear together with cinnamon and balsamic ones. Ripe dark fruit and light brown layers. In the mouth it is powerful and well-structured. Soft tannins. It lingers in the mouth recalling wide taste sensations. A prolonged finish again enhanced by vanilla and brown layers.

About Emilio Moro:

The winery is family-run and has links with the wine world going back three generations. It is located in Ribera del Duero, a land of dry summers and long, hard winters.

Emilio Moro, the founder of Bodegas Emilio Moro, was born in Pesquera de Duero, a wine area of time-honored traditions, where some of the flagship wines of the Ribera del Duero appellation are now produced. It was in this year that the winery's first vineyard, Finca Resalso, was planted.

One advantage that the Bodegas Emilio Moro winery has in its vineyards is that some of them have belonged to the family for many years and ahve the purest clone of the indigenous Tempranillo varietal, known in Spain as "Tinto Fino." This clone has been used to graft all the vine plants of the winery's vineyards, which have gradually grown in surface over time.
