Winemaker's Notes:

This wine carries the name of its creator and was the original flagship brand of the Bodega, previously sold as crianzas. However, these concepts have now disappeared, and today, the brand is solely a wine made from vines of between 10 and 25 years old, and which is aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.

This wine was made from truly top-quality grapes of excellent ripeness, which is demonstrated from the beginning to the end of the tasting. The wine displays an intense colour with a bluish rim and a cherry-red core. Attractive, perfectly integrated fruit aromas come to the fore with power and concentration.

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.
