Details for Clon de la Familia 2015
Bottle size and vintage
Clon de la Familia epitomises the essence of Bodegas Emilio Moro, quality and expressivity raised to their maximum potential. Just 1,000 bottles of it are produced, only in exceptional years, and the profits accruing from its sales are wholly destined for the Emilio Moro Foundation, which contributes to improving the living conditions of people most in need.
All the grapes used in this wine's manufacture belong to the original Tempranillo clone of their oldest vineyards, a clone which the Moro family has managed to isolate and reproduce over the years. A single varietal Tinto Fino, it macerates with skins for a month and ferments in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. It subsequently undergoes ageing for 18 months in fine French oak barrels that respect the wine's fruit essence.
It appears a cherry colour with violet flecks. Blackberries, smoky and lactic notes are predominant on its nose, but it fills out and changes with every moment, also exuding hints of minerals, spices and undergrowth. It's intense and silky on the palate, balanced and very well defined. Freshness and meatiness come together to uphold a memorable wine with a balsamic finish and an aftertaste of outstanding finesse.
