Emilio Moro Finca Resalso2020
Other bottle sizes and vintages
£12.20/ 0.75 L btl
Finca Resalso is a young wine which sets out to show the boldness and expressivity of youthful vines, something that causes no difficulty for the discerning Moro family. Energetic and original, far-removed from the notes of over-ripe fruit and heavy vanilla overwhelming some Ribera del Duero wines; a very polished nose and a juicy, refreshing palate. Entirely likeable, a wine with all the Ribera character in a very accessible profile.
What does this wine taste like?
Finca Resalso is a wine that seeks to show the spirit and expressivity of the young vines, appearing a lovely Picota cherry colour with a vivid crimson rim and tears slow to slide down. The first olfactory sensation is unusual, and stimulating too. There's no perception of the over-ripe fruit and vanilla notes so often found in Ribera del Duero wines: it exudes spicy and floral aromas, hints of olive groves and undergrowth. The oak slowly makes its way through, in the form of glimmers of coffee and sweet spices, but always subordinate to the intensity of some exceptional and juicy bramble fruit. The entry is very fresh — in fact the whole wine is — from start to finish; the toasty notes hit the centre of the tongue while the acidity glides along the sides. Lactic traces, thoroughly pleasant and rounded tannins and a full-on, harmonious finish that leaves a lush touch and shows an authentic Ribera character.

Drinking and storing
Seeing as it’s a wine focused on the kindly side of the Ribera’s Tinto Fino and not its powerfulness, we can use it as a wild card when pairing with food. If we’re thinking of meats, the obvious choice is red, but it can work well with white meats too, especially when grilled or roasted. Charcuterie, hard cheeses and also appetisers and starters, when not strongly-flavoured, prove good alternatives.

EM Resalso format Magnum
Intense cherry color with purple hints due to it being a young wine (2018). On the nose it is fragrant, with primary aromas to blueberries, licorice and black fruits. On the mouth it is round, expressive, intense and easy to drink. Buy in format Magnum, price quality difficult to beat !!!
Top quality wine
I first experienced this wine in Seville during the week of the Feria early May. My favourite tapas bar Antonio Romero carry this wine as one of the two reds offered by the glass, always poured from magnums. Fantastic quality for the price , try serve slightly chilled . Mandrake
