From: Ribera del Duero, Spain
Varietal: Tempranillo (Tinto Fino)
Taste: An effusive wine, offering balanced and rich flavors. Ripe black plum, blackberry, and blackcurrant fruit are accented by pretty notes of star anise and toast, with a touch of violet and iron. These flavors carry to the palate and finish rich and lush, with light tannins.
Pairing: Tapas for the win! And, of course, anything off the grill tends to work magic alongside this wine. Additionally, we recommend to pair this with dishes that incorporate or are centered around chorizo, pizza, Moroccan tagines, meatballs, pulled pork, portobello mushrooms, eggplant and tomato dishes, gyros, kebab, etc. You get the idea. Since so many things pair well with this wine, we’re sharing a recipe for Chorizo Boudin Balls, original recipe from Brian Landry adapted by Suzanne Lenzer, to provide inspiration for your evening.
At a glance. The Moro family has been farming the same vineyards in the Ribera del Duero since 1932, the birth year of Emilio Moro (the patriarch) as well as the year in which the Finca Resalso vineyard was planted. For two generations, the grapes were sold on the bulk market. In 1988, current proprietor José Moro Espinosa invested the family’s entire savings into winery equipment and Bodegas Emilio Moro was born. The bodega joined the D.O. Ribera del Duero in 1989 and quickly established itself as one of the region’s leading producers of top quality wines. The winery is located at the top of a bend in the Duero River in the town of Pesquera del Duero, just to the Northwest of Peñafiel.
