Wine Spectator, 96 pts

"Sleek and tightly trimmed up front, this full-bodied red is rich, with a lovely plushness on the palate as this unfolds and opens up. Features fruit notes of black raspberry and black currant that are ripe yet fresh, underscored by a rich vein of smoky mineral and loamy earth. Reveals accents of eucalyptus and citrus peel, spice box and rose hip that linger on the creamy finish. Stunning today, but should show even more beauty in the coming years. Drink now"

James Suckling, 95 pts

"Deep, fresh and spicy nose with a peppery edge to the dark cherries and blackberries. Just a hint of sandalwood and cigar box. Complex yet pretty subtle, with a mouthful of powdery tannins. Mealy, concentrated and long. Spicy and juicy finish. Shows lots of potential, yet poised and fresh. 100% tempranillo. Drinkable now, but Best from 2025."

 

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.
