Characteristics of Hito

Hito is a young red wine made by the Moro family in Bodegas Cepa 21 in the DO Ribera del Duero.
The word "hito" means milestone, a stone post (sometimes carved) that is used to indicate direction or distance on roads. In a way, the name is a simile with what this wine stands for: a new, modern way of making young wines.

Hito is a Tinta Fina single-varietal from vines planted with clone seeds of the Bodegas Emilio Moro's most emblematic vineyards.

The grapes ferments for 30 days and are subject to pump-overs. The wine then ages for eight months in French oak barrels, giving the wine a subtle elegance and making it stand out from other young wines in the region, approaching the maturity of aged wines.

Tasting notes Hito

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
Sight Picota cherry colour with violet tones. Clean and bright. Nose This new vintage shows a complex, clean and balanced nose with aromas of ripe red and black fruit standing out, along with a good range of spices and hints of cocoa and liquorice. Subtle toasted and roasted notes in the background. Taste This wine is tasty from start to finish. Bulky with good structure. Magnificent, defined and refreshing acidity and ripe, sweet tannins. Long finish and an aftertaste full of fruit and spices. Smoky notes felt at retro-olfaction. Delicious! This red wine is great value for money (and pleasure).

    05/12/16 Hito 2014 We found this wine on a recent visit to Mallorca. It was unfortunate that I could not find any in the shops. It was very lucky that I found it online and the company delivered it to me in quick time. The wine itself was easy to drink and very enjoyable to sit and enjoy in the sunshine. It has a combination of tastes for me that are difficult to explain. I only know that I like it a lot. Try it for yourselves. You'll see.

    The history of the Moro family is the paradigm of the history of Ribera del Duero. With a family tradition and a path to sustained success, where the Tinto Fino variety is the main character. Cepa 21 is a winemaking and architectural project that already has a lot to say about the current and daring nature of new wines aimed at a seasoned , cultured consumer, open to discover new organoleptic sensations. Where innovation hovers over tradition, the modern versus the classic, and subtleness versus robustness. With unique wines, balanced, of intense bouquet and a pure palate.
