Aalto PS 2016 comes from a vintage of a specially cold winter, a quite unusual spring and a summer with a warm start, which resulted in healthy, high-quality grapes, that were hand picked later on, bunch by bunch. So, we are in front of a referring wine in Spain that gets great reviews from both critics and public. Its market release showed freshness and lots of balance, although the evolution in bottle will make it gain complexity and roundness. If you have a great ocassion around the corner, this is one great candidate to be a part of it.

I had it with cod. Very good. I drank it with my brothers and a friend of mine.
The red and violet edges were visible for me. Dominating scent of red currant. I liked its acidity.

2016 Aalto PS: Wine refined and great balance. The nose shows the typical aromas of Tempranillo from old vines. In the mouth it is already friendly from this early stage.
