The Winery

The Winery

Bodegas y Viñedos Carlos Moro is a business and wine project marked by the passion of a winegrower, winemaker and winery owner that has successfully deployed its stamp on other designations of origin, equally demanding and prestigious.

The winery is located on a hill with great views of the town and its surroundings. Its location and its design, with different levels between the different units of elaboration (aging, bottling and shipping) allows the handling of the grape and the movement of the wines by gravity.

An exciting work also driven by a team of winemakers, responsible for selecting a collection of special vineyards on the left bank of the Ebro River with its epicenter in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, and which constituting the starting point for wines that aim to be in the elite of the Qualified Denomination of Origin Rioja. 20 hectares of own vineyards and another 40 managed by Grupo Matarromera form the starting point for this exciting challenge.

The underground corridors with a surface of more than 1.200 m2, with a capacity for over 2,000 barrels, allow natural and homogeneous aging throughout the year because of the optimum temperature and humidity conditions, regardless of weather conditions outside, without dependence on industrial refrigeration equipment and / or air conditioning.

At the same time Grupo Matarromera is evaluating the investment in a system that could take advantage of the humidity and the temperature of the underground corridors, so that these low temperature can be used in the rest of the rooms of the winery. All this will contribute to the philosophy on sustainability and the protection of the environment.

This new winery forms the backbone between two regions, between two rivers which, flowing in the opposite direction, lead to the same destination: a market accustomed to the requirement and the excellence of its wines, motif set with humility, simplicity and professionalism, the principal and noble goal of this new Rioja winery.

It is a very special vineyard: no chemical products are used in its day-to-day cultivation.

The wine The grapes harvested on the Hito Corto estate boast exceptional sugar levels and colour intensity, which subsequently manifest themselves in the wine. The grapes are subject to twofold selection, first bunch by bunch and then grape by grape. Rento 2011 was aged for 18 months in 50 barrels of mainly French oak, from such prestigious coopers as Taransaud, Berthomieu, Boutes and Cantón. The barrels are stacked in only one layer and are refilled by hand.

The bouquet is full, honest and very complex, ripe black fruit predominating amid a multitude of aging notes; cedar wood, liquorice, India ink... It has a good structure, stylish and silky, with a powerful body and a notable framework of robust, well-controlled tannins with an enduring finish.
