Bodegas Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero Malleolus 2009

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose showed rich dark berry, blueberry skins, brown sugar, vanilla and a whiff of gravel dust and hints of barnyard. On the palate, it was feminine and elegant with an unexpected weightless sensation complimented by focused ripe fruits and hints of holiday spice. Very young but impeccably balanced. It finished fresh but with berry extract saturating the senses. (92 points)

For the 2009 Malleolus Ribera del Duero, the wine is 100% Tempranillo that is a nice deep purple color in the glass. The nose is somewhat fruity, with notes of blackberry and plum, with some notes of green grass, some toasted oak and a hint of minerality. The taste has some lovely tart cherry up front that quickly transitions to some lovely leather notes and flavors of green grass, as the wonderfully structured tannins lead to a long, smooth and delicious finish. This wine is just incredibly well structured, it makes me want to drink this wine all night long!

Red fruited with good acidity and long on the finish with a touch of oak. Liked this as well as any Spanish wine I've ever drank.

Bis zu 75-jährige Tinto-Fino-Reben werden für den Malleolus verwendet. Ausdrucksstarkes Bouquet, schwarze Beeren, Kaffee- und Teeraromen, Tabak, schwarzer Pfeffer und mineralische Noten. Am Gaumen enorm komplex, finessenreich, cremig und mit bestens eingebundenen Tanninen.
