“From Tempranillo vines between 15-25 years old, this feels young and tight, layered with black pepper and clove spice. It also has a generous core of black fruit, which needs some time in the bottle to mellow. Decant it for barbecued pork ribs or save it for the next three years to gain in complexity and charm.”

"Black cherry, licorice, espresso and loamy earth flavors mingle in this solid red. Firm tannins and fresh acidity impart structure. Shows lively fruit for balance. Drink now through 2024. (10/15/16)"

"The 2014 Emilio Moro was produced with grapes from vineyards ranging between 12 and 25 years old, fermented with yeasts selected from their own vineyards in stainless steel vats, and aged in 50/50 French and American oak barrels (one-third new) for one year. There are some faint toasty notes denoting a very young wine, but in general it's very fruit-driven and quite harmonious. Time in bottle has polished it and given it a sleek texture and nicely integrated oak. Very approachable and ready. Drink: 2017-2021. (Feb 2017)"
Emilio Moro is one of Spain’s top producers, and their flagship wines can retail for well over $200 per bottle.
A leading producer in Spain’s Ribera del Duero region, Emilio Moro’s wines perfectly fit the American palate’s love of big, rich, full-bodied, lush reds… They produce consistently superior quality wines, rated as highly as 100 points!
The story of the Moro family began in 1932, when Emilio Moro Sr. was born. It is now a project carried out by three generations with roots in the Ribera del Duero, who have spent their lives discovering the characteristics of its terroir. The goal? To produce intense and unique wines.
Ribera del Duero is located in northern Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.
Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spices, dark fruit and smoky flavors of Ribera del Duero wines pair well with roast meats, BBQ and anything off the grill.
