Characteristics of Malleolus

Emilio Moro Malleolus is a red wine produced in the Ribera del Duero by the Emilio Moro winery. Emilio Moro is a family winery that continues to develop in the traditional way, using inherited knowledge passed from generation to generation since its founding over 70 years ago.

The name of this wine comes from the Latin word 'majuelo', a term used to refer to vineyards. Emilio Moro Malleolus is a single variety of Tinta Fina.

The grapes used for making Malleolus comes from the Camino Viejo vineyard. A vineyard planted in 1989, at an altitude of 890 metres above sea level, on a hillside with a steep slope. The soils are clay with some areas of limestone concentration especially in the higher parts of the estate.

The development of Emilio Moro Malleolus begins with a maceration with the skins that stretches for 28 days. After this maceration, malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging occurs for 18 months in new French Allier oak barrels.

Emilio Moro Malleolus is an elegant, sincere and complex wine with a large structure. A great expression of Tinta del País, the queen variety of Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Malleolus

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.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Sight Maroon ripe cherry with dark trim and some violet hues. Thin layer. Nose Intensely aromatic nose. With a predominance of black fruit, with some dairy and balsamic notes. Snuff, rosemary, coffee and an elegant mineral background. Taste In the mouth this wine is powerful, fleshy but very balanced. Black fruit with spices and aging wood appears. Polished and velvety tannins.
Sight Pretty, deep cherry color with maroon edges. Nose Very intense aromas in the nose. Black fruit, balsamic notes, spices, cloves and coffee can be found. Some mineral touches. Taste This wine is powerful, concentrated and very balanced on the palate. The spices, black fruit and wood from its ageing appear again. It has a velvety texture.

Sight Intense maroon cherry colour with thin purple edges. Bright wine with elegant tears. Nose Intense, expressive and clean aromas. The elegant wooden notes appear along with the spicy aromas and some subtle notes of ripe black fruit. When it opens up, the notes of fruit gain in intensity, still well balanced with the creamy smoked nuances and the spices, which give way to some balsamic notes that freshen and round out this aromatic set. The wine is round off with a slight mineral background. A pleasure! Taste Great wine from the Ribera del Duero elegant, serious, very expressive, intense and very well balanced. It has a very nice slightly warm attack, that gives way to a tasty mid palate of perfectly balanced fruit and wood aromas, with a extraordinary silkiness. It shows a very good acidity and very long and very persistent aromas that leave subtle spicy and mineral sensations. A gift from Emilio Moro, to be enjoyed slowly.
Sight Pillory color covered with maroon trim. Nose Nose is a wine dominated by very intense balsamic notes and aromatic woods. Also are the species, the black fruit on mature and jam, coffee, tea and cocoa with a touch of minerals. Taste In mouth is very powerful and concentrated balance and very tasty. By retronasal appear again spicy, black fruit and aromatic wood. Going through the mouth and is velvety with a good integration between fruit and wood to maintain a final warm.

    Harvest after harvest, Emilio Moro has found his own and precise identity in the production of the traditional reds of Ribera del Duero, with a modern touch. These wines are full of colour, highly expressive, virile and eager to live. They rely on the caste and nobility of the family clone Tinto Fino, the strength of the terroir, the selection of wood and a well-interpreted modern oenology. The younger red wines have a good body, without lacking in flavour and balance. The game between time and wood suggests more complex wines, more penetrating, and at the same time more velvety. This is particularly portrayed in their single-vineyard wines.
