The Emilio Moro Malleolus de Valderramiro 2011 is an artful expression of its terroir. 2011 brought heavy winter rains for the Ribera del Duero, and warm temperatures in September and October encouraged optimal ripening of the fruit. The resulting wine is lush and enigmatic, with notes of wood, chocolate, oak, and tobacco. This singular wine is expressive and elegant, and it should not be missed.
Enjoy this wine with a variety of meals, especially traditional Spanish cuisine, as long as they are as impressive as the wine.
