The wine

Bodegas Cepa 21 is a new project in the Ribera del Duero, headed up by the Moro family, owner of Bodegas Emilio Moro. 50 hectares of the purest tempranillo clone enclose an attractive, futuristic-style winery which produces very expressive and modern-style wines, such as the impressive Cepa 21, a wine aimed at the well-informed consumer who's looking for new experiences with regard to wine.

After being destalked, the grapes undergo cold maceration in order to bring out the most delicate aromas, and ferment in stainless steel tanks. After 12 months in mostly French oak barrels, the wine appears a bright cherry colour with purple hues on the rim and exhibits a fresh, complex nose. Lactic aromas mingle with sweet spices, smoke, cocoa and very appealing ripe fruit. On the palate it's succulent and intense, with very fine tannins as well as balsamic and aniseed hints. A luscious finish with subtle oaky nuances.

Bodegas Cepa 21

The Bodegas Cepa 21 winery building, opened in 2007, is located in Castrillo de Duero, on top of a small promontory that offers magnificent views of the vineyards and surrounding countryside. This is where, the brothers José and Javier Moro, the third generation of the Bodegas Emilio Moro, put every effort into extracting the essence of the fruit and making modern wines, aimed at the sort of consumer that's open-minded and well-informed. They have involved several of their...
