Emilio Moro 2017
A REFERENCE TO RIBERA DEL DUERO’S SPIRIT
Emilio Moro’s brand name used to refer to crianzas and reservas, but today it is a synonym for exclusivity. These concept faded away with the vintage from 98. Emilio Moro, the heart of the cellar has been elaborated from 15 to 25 year-old majuelos vineyards.

Details of the harvest
Exceptional and unique vintage. Due to the frosts of 2017, the harvest only produced 50% of the total possible production of the vineyard. The result was a vintage that achieved maximum quality from the grape. This vintage has very high quality expectations.
History & tasting notes
This wine, bearing the name of its creator, is the alma mater of the winery. Since the 1998 harvest, this brand has been used to refer to wines elaborated from vineyards aged between 12 and 25 years, although Emilio Moro was previously used for crianzas and reservas.
Elegant and subtle, a low production volume which has brought out the best essences of the grape. It’s a powerful, balanced wine with exceptional elegance. The aromas of Tempranillo have been refined through the ageing process and it has notes of wood in the background and the personality of the variety. In the palate, it is a reflection of the nose: strong and powerful with mellow and refined tannins.
Elaborated from grapes from vineyards of between 12 and 25 years of age. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, with subsequent ageing in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.
