Emilio Moro, Ribera del Duero, Tempranillo, 2017

$26.99

Wine Advocate 90/00 The eponymous red 2017 Emilio Moro was cropped from a very challenging year, selecting grapes from vines aged between 15 and 25 years of age. It fermented in stainless steel with yeasts selected by them and matured in French and American oak barrels for 12 months. I was quite pleasantly surprised by the quality of the 2017s here, the wines keep the freshness and balance, with a medium-bodied palate, sweet fruit and a juicy texture, very pleasant and easy to drink. 850,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019.

Description

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.
