 One of our favourite Tempranillos. A very representative wine exercise from the Ribera del Duero region; intense aroma and great character thanks to up to 75 years-old vines and its 18 month rest in French oak barrels.

  • Vintage: 2019
  • Appellation: D.O. Ribera del Duero
  • Grapes: 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)
  • Aging period: 18 months in oak barrels
  • Oak: French oak

 🥘 Pairs perfectly with red meats- Jamón Serrano, anyone? 🤤 We matched it with some awesome beef tacos and that was just 👌🌮

Decanter, 93 pts

"Ripe red fruit and sweet vanilla oak aromatics. The palate is fresh and concentrated with woody tannins; finishes lengthily."

James Suckling, 92 pts

"Deep and spicy blackberries and blueberries with a touch of violet, coffee and sandalwood to the nose. Full-bodied and tight, with juicy, tart black cherries and some roasted spices on the palate. Rich and dense, but fresh and floral, too, with fine-grained tannins. Drinkable now."

Emilio Moro

 “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.
