Emilio Moro, the founder of Bodegas Emilio Moro, was born in Pesquera de Duero, a wine area of time-honoured traditions, where some of the flagship wines of the Ribera del Duero appellation are now produced. It was in this year that the winerys first vineyard, Finca Resalso, was planted.
I'm relatively new to Tempranillo, and to wines from Spain. I picked this up as I wanted to try something from Ribera Del Duero since I'd read a lot about it. This wine did not disappoint. Deep dark purple color. I got a noticable fruit aroma (I could not pinpoint which one) backed up by a hint of vanilla as well as some smoke. Just a neat aroma combination. On tasting the wine was very well balanced - not too many tannins but enough to know they were there. A bit of a strong finish, but I think that was partly due to the relatively high alcohol content. All in all a great wine, especially at the under $20 price point.
Nice,it needs two more years in bottle
External Reviews for Bodegas Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero
92 Points - Wine Advocate"The 2006 Emilio Moro was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. It has a superb bouquet of smoke, roasted herbs, scorched earth, and blackberry. Layered on the palate, it has tons of fruit, plenty of spice box notes, a firm structure, and 2-3 years of aging potential. This lengthy effort should provide pleasure through 2026."This wine carries the name of its creator and was the original flagship brand of the Bodega, previously sold as crianzas. However, these concepts have now disappeared, and today, the brand is solely a wine made from vines of between 15 and 25 years old, and which is aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.

A delicious example of Ribera del Duero, this 100% Tempranillo comes from a family run estate. Densely packed with black raspberry and current fruit, and a hint of tobacco, this wine possesses a velvet texture and a long finish.
