Intense ripe cherry-red colour, with dark tones at the heart. The nose is opulent and intense, dominated by black fruits and a marked minerality, accompanied by toasted aromas of fine oak. A great complexity of spicy and sweet nuances. On the palate it is a powerful ensemble, persistent with a silky tannin that envelopes the palate. The finish is long and persistent, and lingers on the palate.
“Malleolus de Valderramiro” is made with grapes from the Valderramiro vine plot. In this plot, the winery has three vineyards planted in 1924. The yield from these vineyards is 2,500 kg/ha and the idea, in the production of this wine, is to maximize the role of the 'terroir'.
"Wine is an art. If you know how to listen it, speaks to you, telling 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.
