It is made from estate-owned vineyards 25 to 75 years of age, located in Pesquera de Duero.
As for the 2020 vintage, it was an "Excellent" one according to the DO Ribera del Duero regulatory board. When harvest time arrived, the grapes were fully ripen and in excellent sanitary condition.
Traditionally vinified, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was first macerated for 18 days in stainless steel tanks, after which it went through both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations.
After that, Malleollus 2020 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for a period of 18 months.
An impeccable Crianza red wine, it is advisable to decant it 1 hour before drinking.
Pair with meat recipes.
The red wine Malleolus is medium purple with a ruby rim.
Oak is quite noticeable, but it does not suffocate the wine. We encounter typical Tempranillo aromas of forest berries and tree bark, with a pinch of herbs, a hint of clove, cardamom and cinnamon, and a deep mineral note.
This wine from bodega Emilio Moro is lively, lush and very fresh. Mulberries and damson, with notes of forest floor and some earthy remembrances. Slightly rugged tannins, nice acidity and a long finish with some toasted and balsamic hints. Classic Ribera at its best.
|Our personal opinion||
Game dishes will make a perfect match with Malleolus 2020.
