Tasting Note:

Deeper, darker and more concentrated than the straight Aalto but with a more reticent graphite-infused nose. It soaks and coats the palate with intense breadth and persistence. Top notes of clear red fruit and flowers are interwoven with an embrace of coiled dark fruit at its core. Spices derived from top quality barrels and ripe, present tannins frame this classically powerful, complex Ribera del Duero that will need a few years to fully reveal its potential. The product of 60-90 year old vines from selected plots in La Horra and La Aguilera, aged for 19 months in 100% new French oak. Surely a Ribera icon and one of the great full bodied wines from Spain.
