Characteristics of Aalto PS

Aalto PS is a red wine made by Bodegas Aalto in OJ Ribera del Duero.

This is an exceptional wine. PS refers to the selected settlements from which the grapes come. They are the best grapes of the Tinto Fino variety, from 60 to 100 year-old strains.

Harvesting is done manually and the grapes are transferred to the cellar in boxes of 15 kg to avoid breakage.

Harvesting is done in times with little sunshine, thus maintaining maximum freshness of the grapes in their arrival at the winery.

Once in the winery, the grapes undergo a second selection process bunch by bunch. The grapes are de-stemmed and fermented separately, each grape at a temperature of between 20 and 25 ° C.

Bleeding is used only for the highest quality wine. The malolactic fermentation takes place in French Allier oak barrels, where aging also occurs for 24 months.

Aalto PS is clarified using natural egg white before bottling. Once bottled, it rests in the bottle for some time before going to market.

Aalto PS can be consumed now, but also has a huge storage capacity. A complex wine from the Ribera del Duero, very fruity and extremely elegant regarded by many as one of the great wines of Spain. A real treat.

Serve at 17ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Aalto PS

Aalto PS 2016 is a mature, complex and deep red wine. A spectacular vintage of one of the gems of Ribera del Duero. Aromas of black and red fruit with toasted notes of tobacco, cocoa and coffee over a very elegant spicy base note. On the palate it is sweet and full with an exquisite tannin level, with a pleasant final freshness that makes it very lingering.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Sight Aalto PS is an intense dark red colour with violet edges. Nose
Taste The taste is a very elegant, refined and balanced. Very rich fruit. Tannins are well polished, velvety. Very long and persistent.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
Sight Very dark, intense and deep cherry colour with purple reflections. Clean and bright well covered wine, with dense, very slow-falling tears. Nose High aromatic intensity with expressive notes of red and black fruit that gain in strength as the wine opens up. Creamy and mellow spices are noticed along with the fruit. Once it opens up, its notes of cocoa, its smoked aromas and its elegant and intense toasted notes are felt and wrap the whole set. Some subtle mineral and forest touches are felt in the background. A nose that becomes more exuberant and charming with some time.
Taste Excellent and full-bodied red wine from the Ribera del Duero with a long mid palate in which its wide sensations coat the mouth constantly. Very silky, very tasty (even sweet) mid palate, with extraordinary notes of ripe fruit, creamy spices, chocolate and some very well integrated and melted toasted hints. Its balsamic notes, along with its good acidity, proved this wine with freshness. A very, very long and very persistent finish.
A pleasure of a wine!
Sight Deep cherry colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with a high robe and dense, elegant, slow-falling tears that stain the glass. Nose Elegant, intense and complex aromas, with very expressive and marked notes of red and dark fruit mixed with sweet spices, cocoa, toffee and toasted aromas that gain in expressiveness when it opens up. Large background of aromatic herbs, minerals and subtle notes of undergrowth. Taste Huge, powerful, full-bodied and very bulky red wine, with intense and well-integrated notes of ripe fruit mixed with toasted, chocolate and balsamic aromas that melt in the mouth with creaminess. Very tasty and sweet. Excellent acidity. Well integrated tannins. It has a very, very long and very persistent finish. A pure pleasure! A hardly forgetable experience!

    Aalto was founded in February of 1999 by Mariano García —who for 30 years was the technical director and oenologist of Vega Sicilia— and Javier Zaccagnini —who was the Director of the Regulatory Council of D.O. Ribera del Duero for 6 years— when they both decided to join their abilities and experience to start a unique project. Their aim was to produce wines that, from the first moment, showed a differentiated personality, where the power and the structure with constitute their elegance and complexity. Nowadays, and since it was founded in 1999, Aalto Bodegas y Viñedos has continued its unstoppable path and has been able to place its wines among the best ones in the world.
