Share this product
HISTORY The word “HITO” means a stone post or milestone used to indicate direction or distance along roads as well as marking land boundaries. Hito is the young wine in the range of this modern and innovative winery. Produced from grapes selected from the vines located at the lowest area of our vineyard, grafted with the Tinto Fino clone from the most emblematic vineyards of Bodegas Emilio Moro. WINEMAKING PROCESS Produced from grapes selected from the vines located at the lowest area of our vineyard, fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel deposits for 30 days and aged in French oak barrels. TASTING NOTES A very lively dark cherry red colour. Intense and honest on the nose, where the varietal aromas of the Tempranillo at its optimum point of ripeness predominate. Subtle hints of ageing appear in the background as well-integrated spiced and toasted notes. In the mouth it has body and length, balanced acidity and good persistence.
Nearly 20 years ago, José Moro and siblings, the third generation of the family wine cellar Emilio Moro, started up an ambitious project that would set up the basis of modern wine making in Ribera del Duero. The Cepa 21’s original objective was to produce, using tempranillo grapes as the main ingredient, wines that were based on wine making tradition and the region’s own terroir, but according to modern new trends. All in all, pure breed wines for consumers from the twenty first century.
Cepa 21 is born with the mission of taking advantage of the knowledge acquired through three generations to create harmonious and excellent wines of a unique personality.
Cepa 21 project has a vision: to position our wines as a world reference by getting the most out of their characteristics and of the unique environment where they are created.
