Emilio Moro Cepa 21 2017
Emilio Moro Cepa 21 2017 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving. Made with 100% Tempranillo, the classic Ribera del Duero grape, the Cepa 21 is a thoroughly modern, elegant expression of the variety with plenty of intense fruit character. On the nose there are generous notes of black cherries, ripe plums, tobacco, and hints of sweet spices. The first sip reveals a full body, firm tannins, and deeply concentrated cassis, blackberry, and baking spice flavours which linger long on the tongue. The extreme continental climate of the Ribera del Duero region means the grapes achieve optimum ripeness while retaining freshness and balance. The Moro family age the wine in French oak barrels for 12 months to soften the firm structure and add complexity and spicy hints to the flavour profile. The result is an intense, harmonious wine which will continue to develop if cellared over the next decade or so. The Cepa 21 project first began some 20 years ago when the renowned Moro family decided to take a fresh, modern approach to Ribera del Duero winemaking. The Emilio Moro winery has been in the family for three generations, but this recent venture has allowed Jose Moro and his siblings to apply their extensive winemaking experience to a new challenge.
