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.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Dark, toasty aromas suggest creosote and chimney smoke; throw in black olive, blackberry, dark plum and mocha scents and this is one hefty package. Fully tannic, with toasty chocolaty flavors of black fruits and oak-based spice, this finishes full and fierce, but not mean.

James Suckling
More fragrant oak and baking spices than the Sanchomartin, this has an all over slick and smooth texture. Tannins are fine cut and the fruit is right in the rich and ripe blood plum and dark cherry zone.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The very balsamic 2011 Malleolus de Valderramiro is always the more opulent of the single-vineyards. This is sourced from a 4-hectare plot in Pesquera de Duero planted in 1924. After fermenting in stainless vats with yeasts selected from their own vineyards, malolactic fermentation was carried out in new American oak barrels, while aging is in French barriques and lasts for 18 months. There are notes of creamy oak, with some lactic hints, damp earth and Mediterranean herbs (it was a ripe vintage) with a core of black fruit. The palate is full-bodied, round, and lush with some chewy tannins that would benefit from some time in bottle and/or powerful food, as this is year in and year out, the oakiest of all Emilo Moro wines.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Plush and dense, this rich red delivers plum, cassis, licorice and cola flavors, with balsamic acidity and enough tannins to stay focused. Bold, in the modern style.

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
