It is the essence of Emilio Moro's oldest vineyards that is the key to understanding this Malleolus, which, through its grape variety matured for 18 months in 500 ltr French oak barrels, intensely expresses balsamic aromas, spices and tobacco contributed from the oak, naturally enriching the grand ensemble. Aromas of ripe, black fruits are still present throughout the tasting and clearly indicate the raw material wherein lies the richness and exclusivity of this wine.
"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.
