Winemaker Notes

Intense ripe cherry-red color, with dark tones at the heart. The nose is opulent and intense, dominated by black fruits and a marked minerality, accompanied by toasted aromas of fine oak. A great complexity of spicy and sweet nuances. On the palate it is a powerful ensemble, persistent with a silky tannin that envelopes the palate. The finish is long and persistent, and lingers on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

WE 97
Wine Enthusiast
orgeous aromas of toasty oak, wood smoke, minerals and layered black fruits feed into a concentrated, thick palate that demands a knife and fork for dissection. Flavors of toast, vanilla bean, woodspice, bacon, mint and blackberry are lush. Give this beauty another couple of years, then drink through 2022.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A polished texture conceals impressive depth in this harmonious red. The plum, cassis, licorice and mineral flavors are supported by well-integrated tannins and glide through the spicy finish. Not showy, but focused and long. Drink now through 2030.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Malleolus de Valderramiro is a single-vineyard Tempranillo from a 0.84-hectare plot of Tempranillo in Pesquera de Duero, which produces tannic wines with marked acidity on clay rich soils. With their single-vineyards they wanted to show the expression of Tempranillo (90-year-old vineyard). Here the malolactic fermentation is carried out in American oak barrels, as they find it’s better suited with the earthy, slightly rustic and rounder character produced by the clay soils. This is rounder than the Sanchomartin, with more lactic aromas and flavors, rich and plump, ripe but balanced, with the concentration and seriousness of old vines, with great stuffing. With time it develops stronger lactic aromas and notes of smoky bacon that makes it the most approachable and commercial-oriented of their top cuvees.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Still too young to fully grasp, this is dominated by toasty oak aromas. But behind the wood, you can just as clearly feel the pulse of fresh red fruit flavors. The wine is intense, ripe and fiery in its youth, best left alone for at least two years. Valderramiro is a selection from old vines on clay soils, delivering a wine with volume and amplitude in its structure.

Emilio Moro Winery Video

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 rack, when to rest. It’s like a living being that needs to be understood and cared for”. D. Emilio Moro

Ribera del Duero is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spice, dark fruit and smoky flavors in a bold Ribera del Duero will pair well with roasted and grilled meats, Mexican food and tomato-based sauces.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
