An intense, deep cherry-red colour. Complex and elegant aromas, with subtle, floral notes that accompany the liquorice, mulberry and blackcurrant. The balsamic notes from the oak are perfectly integrated into the ensemble of the wine. On the palette it is warm and sweet, with balanced acidity and a great quality tannin that caresses the palette. A warm finish that goes on forever.
Made with grapes from the Sanchomartín vine plot located within the municipality of Pesquera de Duero. A Vineyard of 1,00 hectares, it is situated on a hillside on the right bank of the Duero River. The wines produced from this vineyard are tannic with a marked acidity, which makes them ideal for ageing in wood. It was planted in 1964 by grafting stock, using the American Richter 110 method, taken from the oldest family vineyards: Resalso and Valderramiro.
"Wine is an art. If you know how to listen it, speaks to you, telling you when it needs racking and when it needs to rest. It is like a living being that you have to understand, look after and care for" - Don Emilio Moro
The history of Bodegas Emilio Moro goes back three generations. Grandfather was born in 1891 and Emilio Moro in 1932, both were born into the viticulture environment surrounded by vineyards, and grew up treading grapes and racking wine in their native village of Pesquera de Duero, in the province of Valladolid. To have a good wine it is necessary to maintain a good balance between alcohol, acidity and structure. In the same way, to have a great winery they believe it is necessary to establish a balanced triangle formed on three fundamental pillars: Tradition, Innovation & Social Responsibility. The most important asset of their winery is their vineyards, grafted with the purest clone of Tempranillo, also called Tinto Fino. This variety produce small grapes and loose bunches necessary to produce robust wines.
