$54.99 SPECIAL $54.95
A historic wine with deep roots that represented a before and after for the winery. “Malleolus”, meaning vineyard in Latin, the name given to the old vineyards in Pesquera de Duero, is an elegant wine, with great personality and a perfect balance between ripeness and freshness, characteristics given to it by the stony soils of the area.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HARVEST
The weather in 2020 was marked by a slight rise in the average temperature which, together with the abundant rainfall in spring, allowed the vines to develop well. The harvest was accompanied by rainfall that did not affect the quality of the grapes obtained, which will be used to make wines of high quality, aromatic expression and intensity.
This wine is made completely from the Tinto Fino variety of grape. It has been macerated with its owns skin for 18 days. Following malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks, it is aged in French oak barrels until bottling.
Deep picota cherry red colour, on the nose it is intense with ripe black fruits that gain intensity as the wine evolves in the glass. During the tasting we perceive a fruity base, nuances of Tempranillo aromas and spicy notes characteristic of the great vintages of this brand. On the palate it is voluminous, with ripe, silky tannins. The aftertaste is long and very persistent.

"Dark ruby violet-colored in the glass, this wine has enticing aromas of orange peel, milk chocolate and black raspberry. Plush tannins and bright acidity wake up your mouth to flavors of ripe cherry, cranberry, anise frond and dried lavender."

"COMMENTARY: The 2020 Emilio Moro Malleolus is an exciting red wine that makes a statement. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of black earthy notes, rocks-in-the-desert, tart berries, and spice. Pair it with an oven-roasted prime rib. (Tasted: October 7, 2023, San Francisco, CA)"
WS92, Wine Spectator
"A fragrant version, with black licorice and toast accents to the baked cassis and blackberry fruit flavors. Rich and expressive, without being weighty, layering the tang of balsamico acidity and supple tannins with the expressive profile. Reveals a waft of medicinal herbs on the finish."
