Tasting Note:

A silken, highly refined Aalto, with a fine, suave quality of tannins and freshness throughout. Less of a blockbuster and more elegant this year, Aalto 2016 is rich and clearly Ribera but its velvety, glossy polish, tender tannins and waves of clear-cut, beautifully supple fruit make it deceptively easy to drink right from release, offering up sensations of black cherry and raspberry with subtle aromas of wood spice, finely grated dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. One of the finest in their twenty year history. Aged in 50% new oak for 18 months. Enjoy now and over the next ten years.
