Details of the harvest
An extraordinarily rainy year with spring marked by high temperatures that favored the vegetative cycle of the vine. A summer with higher than average temperatures and low rainfall but thanks to cool night temperatures the vines did not suffer excessive stress which greatly favored a good aromatic and polyphenolic maturity. The benevolance of the climate lead to an early harvest which prevented October rainfall from affecting the health status of the grapes.
History & tasting notes
This wine reaches the highest levels of quality in Bodegas Emilio Moro, paying homage to the “TINTO FINO CLONE” which is the winery’s greatest asset. The sub-soli and micro-climate of the “Cornalvo”, “Camino Viejo” and “La Mira”plots represent the three soil types of Ribera del Duro (clayey, chalky and rocky) and the aging takes place in exclusive barrels, designed to respect the aromaof the fruit and the land from which it comes, resulting in a wine that fo us, is an expression of TRADITION, CHARACTER and PASSION.
Intense cherry red with a violet rim, on the nose elegant, expressive and with great finesse. The 2014 vintage achieves a perfect balance between the elegance of the soils, varietals and ageing . All of this enriched with nuances of the finest oaks enhance the expression of this great wine. In the mouth intense, silky and well balanced with a long and persistent aftertaste.
26 days maceration in small capacity vats, malolactic fermentation and ageing for 15-20 months in limited edition French oak barrels.
