Details for Aalto 2018
Bottle size and vintage
Aalto is the emblematic wine of a cellar which, within the space of very few years, became a Ribera del Duero reference point. Vintage after vintage, its wines and especially Aalto, at a more affordable price, are on the receiving end of excellent critiques from the experts and highly esteemed by enthusiasts. Rightly so indeed.
Aalto is a wine of great balance and complexity, full of powerfulness and personality, which owes its fine qualities to magnificent Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) grapes, the diversity of the soils and the vast experience of Mariano García, the oenologist who for thirty years was in charge of wine production at Vega Sicilia.

Aalto 2017 (Magnum)
Vino corposo con note di frutti rossi e caffè che emergono con equilibrio. Si sente abbastanza la fragranza del legno ma si aggiusta pienamente al mio palato. Si può invecchiare ma già pronto per essere apprezzato. Ottimo vino, ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo, non mancherà nella mia cantina. Da ricomprare!by: Encke (3 Mar) - Vintage 2017
Buena relación calidad - precio. Elegante, un vino expresivo, incluso diría que aterciopelado. Un gran vino para grandes ocasiones, no defrauda. Volveré a por más.by: Encke (17 Feb) - Vintage 2017
Un gran vino desde el primer sorbo, que te envuelve con un sabor redondo. Recomendable dejar airear. Un Ribera excelente.
Aalto was founded in 1999 by Mariano García and Javier Zaccagnini and within a few years it had already begun to be regarded as one of the denomination's best. Recognised today as being among Spain's best, its wines reveal all the potential of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) variety, the exceptional nature of the Ribera del Duero and the craftsmanship of a winemaker of Mariano García's standing, the oenologist and owner of Bodegas Mauro and former oenologist with Bodegas Vega Si...
