Winemaker Notes

This wine has a cherry color, and it offers a great variety of sensations. On the mouth it’s intense and mouth-watering. On the nose, its richness and variety of aromas stand out: wood, black fruits and vanilla.

James Suckling
Plenty of blueberry and plum-cake character. Ripe and generous with full, but quite supple tannins for a young Ribera del Duero red. Keeps pumping out the ripe flavors on the fresh and intense finish.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Mildly gritty blackberry and cassis aromas are lightly charred and a touch fiery. A fully saturated palate is at max weight, while this tastes primarily of blackberry and chocolaty oak. Considering that this is Moro’s basic RDD, with some 70,000 cases bottled, it’s exemplary. Drink through 2025.

Wine Spectator
I also tasted the 2016 Emilio Moro, from a cooler year with higher yields. For this label, they select grapes from vines ranging between 15 and 25 years of age, as the range here is (mostly) defined by vine age. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. I found it fresher than the 2015, and it kept its juicy and fruit-driven profile. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannins. It would be phenomenal with a little more acidity.

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.
