Bodegas Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero 2009
From the estate's younger Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) vines and aged in French oak for 4 months. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a nicely perfumed nose of violets, spice box, leather, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of savory fruit, an easy-going personality, and excellent depth.
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.
External Reviews for Bodegas Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero
Emilio Moro Ribera Del Duero is a classic, in the 2009 vintage the wine's aromatics are very forward with bright red fruit character, cola, and spice notes.
Dunkle, reife Kirschen, sehr druckvoll mit einer Vanille- und Kräuternote. Im Gaumen eine kräftige und fleischige Struktur mit präsenten und runden Tanninen.
In der Nase Cassis, schwarze Kirschen, Oliven, Lakritze sowie gut integrierte Holznoten. Am Gaumen herrlich dicht, feine Extraktsüsse, klar strukturiert und gekonnt gebündelt bis ins lange Finale. Ein genialer Klassiker und jedes Jahr aufs Neue ein Bestseller.
