Review

Emilio Moro is the bodega's top production wine, and the one that proudly bears the founder's name and image. In the words of José Moro, "it's the ALMA MATER, it's my father, and that says it all". Indeed, there's not much more to add: produced using vines aged between 15 and 25 years old, it picks up the essence of the three types of soil found in the Ribera del Duero endowing the wine with a wide variety of nuances. A lovely wine, rich, fresh, lively, elegant, complex...: the winery's flagship and a great representative of this Castilian denomination.

In the glass, it appears a Picota cherry colour and replicates a great variety of olfactory sensations which will go on lasting afterwards on the palate in an intense, most pleasant and satisfying way. Its richness and aroma variety are a focal feature, complete with toasty notes, cherries, liquorice and vanilla. On the palate it's juicy and fresh, easily identifiable as a Ribera del Duero due to how well it combines giving expression and pure pleasure. It's harmonious, with the fruit taking the limelight; having soft tannins and perfectly integrated oak, it's seductively appealing and immensely enjoyable to drink.

Classic - needs another year

Unfortunate Emilio Moro keeps his price settings … likely due to vast followers. Consistent Moro style and if you like you will love it … better in 1 year.

Klassiker

Der Emilio Moro ist einer der Klassiker aus der Ribera del Duero Region. Man kann hier nicht viel falsch machen, aber bezahlt mittlerweile für den Namen mit. Es gab früher auch bessere Jahrgänge.
