The Moro family has been making wine in Ribera del Duero for more than 120 years. Bodegas Emilio Moro has 260 acres of vineyards and the vines used for this delicious wine are 15-25 years old. We found purple ruby fruits, deep tannins that are pretty smooth for such a young wine, and an overall charming, supple personality. A great hint of roasted coffee shows up on the finish. Aged in 50% French Allier oak and 50% American oak for 12 months.

Bright ruby. Black raspberry and cassis aromas show a sexy, floral quality, along with notes of rose oil and smoky minerals. Lush and creamy but energetic, offering excellent clarity and seductive spiciness to its dark fruit flavors. Fine-grained tannins give shape and grip to a long, juicy finish.
The 2007 Emilio Moro is the Bodega's most traditional wine, aged for 12 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, the nose displays cedar, Asian spices, leather, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense and concentrated on the palate with excellent length and several years of aging potential, it is an outstanding value in serious Ribera del Duero wine.
