Wine Spectator, 92 pts

"This rich white is generous yet focused. Pear, quince, heather and vanilla flavors are backed by citrusy acidity, with accents of mineral, tangerine and smoke. Harmonious."

Robert Parker, 91 pts

"Their top Godello white from Bierzo is the 2017 La Revelía, produced with fruit from a warm, ripe and dry year. It fermented in 500-liter French oak barrels, where the wine matured for eight months. Despite the ripe year, the wine has kept its poise and balance, the oak feels very integrated. It has good freshness and a lively palate with focused flavors and a long finish."

Vinous, 91 pts

"Limpid yellow. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit aromas develop floral and mineral nuances as the wine opens up. Bright and focused on the palate, offering juicy pear, Meyer lemon and melon flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes long and silky, with a mineral flourish and a lingering lemon note. Drinking window: 2021 - 2025."

 “To make good wine, it’s necessary to love wine” Emilio Moro

Currently run by the Moro’s family third generation, the winery produces great wine from vineyards that are used also to name them, such as Resalso (their entry-level wine, from a vineyard planted in 1932), Valderramiro and Sancho Martin, both naming two variants of the Malleolus family, launched more than 20 years ago.

Emilio Moro, the current owner’s grandfather was born in Pesquera de Duero, one of Ribera del Duero’s most popular towns. He’s credited for passing his love for winemaking to his son and grandchildren that ended in this legendary winery.

Tradition - For the Moro family, “tradition implies responsibility”. They claim the quality of their wines is based, in part, on the three generations of tradition.

Innovation - Emilio Moro collaborates with multiple research depts in Spain colleagues to improve and perfect winemaking processes.
