You will like to know that…

Spanish winery Aalto has the honour of counting to the 100 best wineries in the world. So it seems only natural that great wines result from this representative, following the winery's footsteps: great reputation and high quality. Emerged of a meticulous selection of Tinto Fino (100%) from 40 to 80 year old vines, Aalto 2012 is an intense, compelling, fresh and fleshy wine. In its previous vintages Aalto already outreached 90 points of national as well as international prestigious guides. But this vintage leaves them all behind. Have you already tried it? Now's your chance... at the best price!

Donker rood. Meestal aroma's van koffie en hout. Sterke smaken als aardbei caramel.
Goede wijn die goed zou gaan met een goed vlees.
Ik kan me niet voorstellen deze Aalto Cosecha 2012 alleen te drinken.

Aalto Cosecha 2012

4 /5

No casamento de um amigo.
Nota-se que o Aalto Cosecha é de capa baixa. Cheiro principal a caramelo. Os sabores equilibram-se bem.
É melhor acompanhado com um bom presunto ibérico.

4/5

Aromas of raisins. Acid, fresh, light.
Somehow weaker than previous vintages, it keeps being a great wine.

4/5

Fine aromas of raisins. The Aalto Crianza had been badly kept, because you could taste like ripe grapes.
Better than any of the Bodegas Aalto wines .
