Aalto 2017

One of the finest wines to emanate from Spain and in particular, the Ribera del Duero region. Aalto is pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), sourced from old vines - 40 to 80 years old - planted across seven different villages in the province of Burgos, supplemented with fruit from younger vines from Aalto's own vineyards located in two villages in the province of Valladolid. Matured for 17 months in a combination of French and American oak (50% new) Aalto is rich and clearly Ribera but its velvety, silky tannins and beautifully supple fruit make it deceptively easy to drink right from release. It offers up sensations of black cherry and raspberry with subtle aromas of wood spice, finely grated dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. A wine that will gain complexity over the years.
