The 2018 vegetative cycle began with an extraordinarily rainy April and May, which caused a slight delay in budding. The rainfall sat below the historical levels during the summer months, helping to balance the cycle. The temperatures were very close to normal for the region, except during the last stage of ripening when they were above average, which helped to bring the year to a close with optimum ripeness levels and great balance in the grapes.
Felisa has been the backbone of the Moro family and now her children pay her homage. La Felisa is the first organic wine of the brand and free of added sulfites. It is made with grapes from medium age vineyards.
Deep cherry red in colour, with intense violet rims. It surprises on the nose with aromas of recently fermented grapes. The ensemble is intense and very fruity, with primary notes of Tempranillo at its most natural, blackberry, liquorice; something different in our variety. It has great volume in the mouth, persistent, meaty tannins, balanced acidity and a marked passage.
This is an organic wine without sulphur, fermented at controlled temperature, macerated for 15 days with skins and then aged in French oak barrels of 225/500l.
