Aalto

With over a decade of vintages under their belts and a highly detailed understanding of the scores of parcels of old vines they own, Aalto has well and truly established itself as one of the great wines of both Ribera del Duero and Spain in general. It is hardly surprising given it is a collaboration between Javier Zaccagnini and Mariano Garcia, the former an ex-director of Ribera’s  Consejo Regulador, the latter winemaker at Vega Sicilia for 30 years.  In their modern, gravity fed winery  the team receive the multiple plots in refrigerated rooms for sorting and de-stemming before parcel by parcel vinification down below. Ageing takes place in barriques with a selection of the finest plots, generally with a “heart” of wine from the great village of La Hora, being selected in great years to make Aalto PS (Pagos Seleccionados). The straight cuvee of Aalto tends to drink very well after three to four years, the PS often requiring more like six to ten.
