Aalto Pagos Seleccionados 2018 | Magnum (150cl)

The iconic Aalto Pagos Seleccionados (PS) is pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) sourced from the estate's finest and oldest vines - up to 90 years old - grown across nine different villages in the province of Burgos and Valladolid. The harvest is done entirely by hand, into small 15 kilo boxes and then each bunch is meticulously inspected on the sorting table at the winery. Aged for 19 months in 100% new French oak Aalto PS is a robust and concentrated expression of Aalto, with deeper blackcurrant, blackberry, strawberry and spice-driven fruits, topped with notes of cordite, herb and tobacco. On the palate, the smooth and silky tannins lead way to a robust and well structured wine of considerable elegance and finesse. Perfectly integrated, the time spent in new oak has smoothed the huge power of Aalto PS. This needs to be kept in bottle for some years to offer its best and is now gaining complexity and balance.
