2001 Emilio Moro Ribera de Duero

February 02, 2005|S. Irene Virbila

Tempranillo is to Spain what Sangiovese is to Italy. It makes serious reds in a number of regions. But Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero has a special character. The 2001 from Bodegas Emilio Moro, an estate with more than a century of winemaking tradition, expresses the terroir in its deep red color, voluptuous texture and firm structure. Ripe and earthy, this is a red that loves roasted and braised meats: leg of lamb, standing rib roast, and chops grilled over a wood fire.
