Tasting Note:

Aalto 2018, from 40-80 year old vines, is the product of a fresher vintage. In typical Ribera fashion, it is still impressively deep and powerful but with a certain suppleness and sweet, contoured tannins that support rather than dominate. Both red and black fruits, fresh flowers, and dark spicy notes aid complexity. It was aged for 16 months in French and American oak before bottling in July 2020. A very high quality wine for the money, with a sleek, glossy palate and lots of intensity and age-ability, Aalto is surely one of Spain’s most compelling fine wines.
