You will like to know that...

Aalto is one of the best known wines of Ribera del Duero, born from a project initiated by Mariano García -considered one of the best oenologists in the world and whose contribution to the quality and fame of Ribera del Duero wines is indisputable- and Javier Zaccagnini in February 1999. Both had extensive experience in Ribera del Duero wines and the union of their knowledge resulted in a wine of the highest quality that year after year reflects all the richness of the lands of the Ribera del Duero.

To this end, the grapes from several villages are made separately (150 small plots of old vineyards owned by Bodegas Aalto in seven different villages in the Ribera del Duero region of Burgos as well as from other young vineyards owned by two villages in the province of Valladolid) and are assembled at the end of the ageing process. In this way, Aalto wines gain a great balance and complexity and for this reason Aalto 2016 is also one of the most recognised wines of the D.O.

The 2016 vintage stands out for its smoothness and fine tannins and will also age well thanks to the fact that the harvest was characterised by a good yield that has provided fresh and balanced wines.

Aalto Tempranillo 2016

Concentrated, deep green digestive aromas of licorice, currants, Dried plums and tobacco, a hint of fresh herbs and mint. Soft and velvety on the palate, concentrated extract, red and black berries, cassis, impressive potential. The wine should be decanted at this young stage. Matches a Entreco te with Kraeuterkruste.

Unlike the 13, 14 and 15 was opbrgenst slightly higher but the wine has become so hot that all countries, but relatively small allocation. . Aalto has a substantial taste and is medium to full bodied, the nose has intense fruit aromas with light wood in the background. The wine is full and complex, but without compromising freshness.
