The wine

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.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

I like the balance of the eponymous 2018 Emilio Moro, which achieved full-ripeness and development of aromas and flavors in a cooler vintage. Here, the wines are selected by vine age, and this comes from vines that are between 15 and 25 years of age. The oak is there but in synchrony with the fruit.

The winery

Emilio Moro

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. Some...
