The most important asset of our winery is our vineyards, grafted with the purest clone of Tempranillo, also called Tinto Fino. This variety produce small grapes and loose bunches necessary to produce robust wines.
During the last century in Pesquera de Duero many vineyards were up-rooted, but due to the passion of the Moro family for the vines, their vineyards were saved. In this way we have conserved a carefully selected clone which has been grafted in all our vineyards.
During the last ten years we have signed collaboration agreements with the Leon University to obtain this pure clone, free of viruses and pathogens.
Currently we have 200 ha. of our own vineyards and another 200 ha. controlled directly by us through agreements with other viticulturists.
Our Viticulture methods are environmentally friendly, with no artificial irrigation, because we believe this can alter the characteristics of the harvest (the aromatic hints depend on the rainfall) and we prefer that each year has its own personality.
With its intense violet colour, very deep and lively, this wine honours the outstanding vintage of 2014. The nose is dominated, with remarkable intensity, by varietal aromas. Mature but still retaining the freshness and liveliness of its youth, in the form of red and black fruits. On the palate the mature tannins and the freshness of its acidity are highlighted, resulting in an ensemble that is very pleasant to drink.
The nose reflects the character of the vintage with fresh, clean aromas whilst maintaining strength and intensity. The oaky notes highlight the varietal character of this Emilio Moro which is the result of an intensive grape selection. On the palate it has body without being “rustic”, well balanced and returning to the freshness of the varietals and the grapes
On this occasion, the grandeur of the fruit from our oldest vines has combined with a vintage that today we could consider the best of the decade, and the result is a grandiose wine that is outstanding for the intensity and quality of sensations it offers, from a nose of concentrated black fruit aromas combined elegantly and subtlety with oak, to a sweet, powerful, ripe tannin that fills the mouth. Grand and elegant, Malleolus offers us today the resulting combination of the best of the wine world, an extraordinary raw material, exceptional weather and careful work carried out in the winery to allow the wine to express itself fully and with harmony
Intense ripe cherry-red colour, with dark tones at the heart. The nose is opulent and intense, dominated by black fruits and a marked minerality, accompanied by toasted aromas of fine oak. A great complexity of spicy and sweet nuances. On the palate it is a powerful ensemble, persistent with a silky tannin that envelopes the palate. The finish is long and persistent, and lingers on the palette.
An intense, deep cherry-red colour. Complex and elegant aromas, with subtle, floral notes that accompany the liquorice, mulberry and blackcurrant. The balsamic notes from the oak are perfectly integrated into the ensemble of the wine. On the palette it is warm and sweet, with balanced acidity and a great quality tannin that caresses the palette. A warm finish that goes on forever.
