Tapas is always a winner for a food pairing, or enjoy at a barbecue.
"Ribera del Duero is a hot region that produces powerful, inky wines, but this red from Emilio Moro shows off it’s lighter side. It has pure, ripe, natural blackberry fruit and really comes into it’s own with barbecue food."
Finca Resalso is the name of an historic vineyard that was planted in 1932, the year Emilio Moro was born. This is the name given to the wine made from grapes from their younger vines grown in a mixture of clay, stony and chalky soils.
The wine macerates with its own skins for 12 days, so later the malolactic fermentation is made for 30 days in stainless steel. Finally, it is aged in 3 year old French oak barrels.
