Malleolus de Valderramiro 2014
AN UNCTUOUS TERROIR OF GREAT BALSAMIC INTENSITY
A wine that has been elaborated to make the terroir the protagonist. I has been elaborated with grapes from Pago de Valderramiro, planted in 1924, which together with Resalso vineyard make up the genetic reservoir for Bodegas Emilio Moro.
Details of the harvest
An extraordinarily rainy year, with a spring marked by the high temperatures that favored the vegetative development of the vine. During the summer there were slightly higher than average temperatures and little rain, but thanks to the cool nights the vines did not suffer stress which greatly favored the complete aromatic and polyphenolic maturity. The benevolence of the climate led to an early harvest, which prevented the October rains from compromising the health of grapes.
