Review

Emilio Moro El Zarzal and La Revelía are two top quality white wines produced in Bierzo, far away from the winery's origins in Ribera del Duero. El Zarzal is the first wine in this range, created with a firm commitment to the freshness and character of the Godello variety. It is made with grapes from vines over 15 years old.

The must ferments in French oak foudres at a controlled temperature before ageing on its lees in the same casks. The resulting wine has a soft straw-yellow colour and a very fresh nose, combining fragrant notes of ripe white and yellow fruit and dried flowers with the intense mineral character commonly found in great Godello wines from Bierzo. Extremely elegant in the mouth, it is pleasant to drink and wonderfully balanced thanks to the perfect contrast between acidity and strength. It is a somewhat more mature wine than its 'big brother', La Revelía, but it is also an agile wine with a cautious sensation of alcoholic strength whose perfectly integrated wood only appears in the background. It is smooth and flavoursome in the mouth, salty and lively, with elegant floral and spicy aromas.

buen godello del bierzo

buen godello del Bierzo afrutado, sabroso, envejecido en sus lias ... ideal para arroces, pescados o para disfrutar de una buena copa de vino. Bodega de referencia ...

En dos tiempos

Recién abierto es afrutado y mineral. Al día siguiente es sobretodo mineral. Muy agradable de beber, viniendo de donde viene. Personalmente prefiero la potente mineralidad de la godello de Valdeorras, pero reconozco que el Bierzo está triunfando con sus godellos modernos. El secreto de la godello: fermentación en sus lías.

Bodegas Emilio Moro

Bodegas Emilio Moro

Bodegas Emilio Moro has the perfect platform for producing great wines: family tradition (José and Javier Moro are the third generation of vine growers), a strategic site (in the heart of the Ribera del Duero), pure clones of the indigenous grape, excellent quality soils (clay, chalk and gravel) and an ideal orientation. The winery currently owns some 200 hectares of vineyards, planted and grafted with an excellent Tempranillo clone recouped from their oldest vineyards. So...
