Characteristics of Aalto

Aalto is a red wine from the D.O Ribera del Duero produced by the winery Aalto. The grapes used to produce Aalto, originate from very old wines between 40-80 years of age, and young vines. The grapes come from 2 fields owned by the winery and other distributors from 7 towns in Ribera del Duero.

The harvest is completed by hand in October. The grapes are then transported to the wines in small boxes (15kg max) to avoid the grapes breaking and loosing freshness.
The grapes are subsequently chose from an extensive search for the best quality on the sorting table.
After the various process methods, Aalto is fermented and aged for 20 months in new and semi-new French and American oak barrels.

Aalto aged very well in the bottle and can be consumed in the next 15-20 years. It is recommended to decant before serving to enjoy it to its fullest potential.
Aalto is a wine with great national and international acknowledgements. The wine has won many awards and received high scores from the most prestigious of judges.

Serve at 15ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Aalto

Aalto 2016 is a deep red wine that is powerful and concentrated. Another very good vintage for this extraordinary wine, which is expressed on the nose with distinction with aromas of ripe black fruit, and elegant toasted and spicy notes over a subtle mineral base note. On the plate it has a voluminous entry, is silky, with volume and structure and a very lingering and pleasant finish.
This 2015 vintage, which is qualified as excellent, is one of the essential ones to understand Aalto. An optimum degree of maturity for the extraction of elements has favoured a good ageing in the barrels. As a result, we have a wine with a concentrated profile, where the black fruit perfectly combines with the spices provided by its ageing. An essential for those who love opulent wines.
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.

    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.
