Emilio Moro ‘Finca Resalso’ – Tempranillo; Ribera del Duero, Spain; 2022

Finca Resalso is the name of the historic vineyard that was planted in 1932, the year in which Emilio Moro, father of the third generation of the Moro family, was born.

During the winter the rains were typical, and in the spring the good temperatures accelerated growth, which then slowed down with the arrival of summer. The high temperatures and low rainfall during the summer period lasted until after the grape harvest. These circumstances provided outstanding grape concentration and ripeness. As such, it is a year of wines with a marked personality – full-bodied, with great aromatic density and heft on the palate.

The wine macerates with its own skins for 12 days, so later the malolactic fermentation is made for 30 days in stainless steel deposits. Finally, it is aged in French and American oaks barrels. All of this creates a deep cherry red color with a violet rim, the bouquet is intense and fruity, dominated by the ripe black fruits typical of Tempranillo. Subtle floral notes and milky nuances appear in the glass, adding complexity and sweetness to the wine. In the mouth it is silky and full-bodied. Thanks to a very ripe tannin, the palate is pleasant and creamy, with a very pleasing finish and a long aftertaste.
