Details for Emilio Moro 2017
Bottle size and vintage
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.

Un Ribera del Duero redondo
De color rojo oscuro con ribetes violáceos denota viveza. En boca es un tinto redondo, equilibrado, afrutado y agradable de beber. Perfecto para maridar con carnes y embutidos.by: email@example.com (2 Jan) - Vintage 2017
Muy buen producto en comparación con los de su nivel.
Muy buen vino, en comparación con los de su nivel. Quizá le falte ser más agradable en boca para ser un vino especial.by: Angela garcia martinez (26/11/2019) - Vintage 2017

Never fails to impress
Having discovered this wine a number of years ago in Ibiza, year after year it has never disappointed but I've never found any stockists in the UK, and now I can enjoy it in my own home courtesy of Vinissimus!
