The pure expression of Tempranillo in its youngest version.
Finca Resalso is the name of a historical vineyard which was planted in 1932, the year in which Emilio Moro was born. This is the name we have given to our young wine, which is made from grapes from our young vines.

In The Cellar
The wine macerates with its own skins for 12 days, so later the malolactic fermentation is made for 30 days in stainless steel deposits. Finally, it is aged in French oaks barrels.

In The Vineyard
The 2021 vintage saw mild Spring temperatures, abundant rainfall in April and a summer with temperatures slightly lower than usual, which slowed the plants’ vegetative cycle. Rain was scarce at the beginning of Autumn, promoting the ripening of the grapes.
"This cooler vintage in Spain has yielded some very pretty wines across the board especially in Ribera del Duero. With a soft, accessible Tempranillo styling like the Resalso, the vintage conditions were perfect, offering up a deliciously juicy wine with wonderfully expressive aromatics of violets, lilac, red currants, cranberry, strawberries and subtle hints of salty red liquorice, raspberry balsamic and a sweet exotic wood spice complexity. Ribera del Duero reds are known for their punch and power, but this beauty is fruit-driven and crystalline being made from younger vines that offer freshness, vibrancy and accessible opulence that is caressed by the circa four months oaking rather than being overwhelmed by it. Already fabulously approachable and soft textured, there is a lovely vibrancy of red berries, raspberries and strawberries underpinned by superbly elegant, supple mineral tannins and a crunchy, mouth-watering acidity. This is the archetypal mid-week drinker that will definitely put a smile on your face! Drink now and over the next 2 to 3+ years." - Greg Sherwood MW.
