emilio moro clon de la familia 2016 750ml
This wine, which exceed the Bodegas Emilio Moro's quality expectations, is a homage to the Tinto Fino clone, our best asset. It is born of the harvests gathered from the most emblematic and representative plots of the three types of subsoil in Ribera del Duero. It is aged in exclusive barrels which respect the aromas of the fruit and of the land from which it comes, exuding TRADITION, CHARACTER AND PASSION.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HARVEST
The cool temperatures at the beginning of spring and the abundant rainfall slightly delayed the vineyard budding. These late rains were of great significance for the rest of the grapevines’ vegetative cycle, since the water reserves accumulated resulted in a year of abundant, balanced harvest of great ripeness.
26 days of maceration in small tanks followed by malolactic fermentation and ageing in exclusive French oak barrels.
Very deep garnet. A bouquet of great character and extraordinarily abundant nuances, among which the aromas of great Tempranillos come to the fore, slowly attenuated by respectful ageing. The primary and tertiary aromas intermingle to form a harmonious whole with great aromatic depth. Meaty on the palate, full bodied but with excellent balance, yielding to a wine with a very long, persistent aftertaste and pleasant remembrance.
