You will like to know that...

Not even the most adverse conditions of the 2013 harvest in the region of Ribera del Duero could overshadow Aalto's new vintage. On the contrary: diligence and attention as much for the vineyards as for the vinification process have led once more to one of the appellation's most appreciated wines. Balanced, complex and pulpy, Aalto 2013 is based on the grape variety Tinta Fina (Tempranillo), which proceeds from old vines with low output. Mariano García, responsable for Vega Sicilia's wine elaboration for over 30 years, gave them their character which vaulted this wine on the top of the wines with the best cost-benefit ratio.

Aalto Crianza 2013

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 .
