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.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 15ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
