La Revelía is the most sophisticated in the range of whites which Emilio Moro produces in the Bierzo. The most serious, complex and unctuous. A white matured in barrel by a winery that knows very well how to utilise oak without disguising the wine. A Godello white with clearly defined
aromas, well-integrated oak, fresh, lively, and intended to evolve in bottle.
The label is the work of artist Domingo Zapata, who uses some very bold and figurative artwork to reflect the contrasts which can be found in this wine.
What does this wine taste like?
It has a clear and bright straw-yellow colour in the glass and is unctuous and balanced in the mouth with a well-integrated acidity and a perfect fusion between wood and fruit. It has a lingering aftertaste and an accessible and flavoursome profile.

|Ageing period||8 months|
|Type of wood||French oak|
The best Godello grapes are harvested from steep hillsides at heights of over 600 metres. The late ripening and different orientations of the vines brings richness and personality to the wine.
|Climate||Continental with Atlantic influence|
Bodegas Emilio Moro has the perfect platform for producing great wines: family tradition (José and Javier Moro are the third generation of vine growers), a strategic site (in the heart of the Ribera del Duero), pure clones of the indigenous grape, excellent quality soils (clay, chalk and gravel) and an ideal orientation. The winery currently owns some 200 hectares of vineyards, planted and grafted with an excellent Tempranillo clone recouped from their oldest vineyards. Some...
