Clon de la Familia 2011
THE ESSENCE THAT REPRESENTS THE EXPRESSION OF CHARACTER
A 1,000 bottle limited production of Bodegas Emilio Moro’s most exclusive and representative wine. This wine is also the acknowledgement to the family legacy that has enabled through the years the selection of a CLONE of tempranillo and the social commitment of the Moro family.
Details of the harvest
The heavy rains over winter allwed the vines to withstand a drier cycle than expected. The warm temperatures during September and October along with the absence of any meteorological anomalies allowed for a longer harvest period which enabled the optium ripening in each plot.
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.
This wine pays tribute to our clone and developed though careful selection of our best “terroirs”, it found in he 2011 vintage its best aññy. The elegance of the chalk, the structure and character of the clay and the maturity of the stony soil are all expressed in this vintage and in this wine, in an intense and well-defined manner. All of this enriched with nuances of the finest oaks which enhance the natural expression of an extraordinarily fine red, our Clon de la Familia.
26 days maceration in small capacity vats, malolactic fermentation and ageing for 18 months in limited edition French oak barrels.
