Quick Overview

Dark purple. The nose has intense fruit aromas with wood in the background, bringing complexity without detracting from the sense of freshness. The palate is broad, structured and elegant as befits such exceptional phenolic maturity, with no hard edges and a tannic structure in perfect harmony with alcohol and acidity. The typical flavors of the Tempranillo are all present – licorice, black fruits and roasted coffee, alongside spices and fresh tobacco – provided by an impeccable wood aging. This wine is very long and will no doubt gain in complexity over the years.

Details

Like much of viticultural Spain, Ribera del Duero has a long history of winemaking. As far back as 2,000 years ago, there is strong evidence of grape growing and winemaking by the Romans. As early as the 16th century, the region began to establish rules governing varietals and quality levels. Located northwest of Madrid, the region is based around the Duero river which unites over 100 small villages and covers 115 kilometers of vineyard land along the riverbanks and further north and south. It is ironic that one of the youngest properties in the region has one of the most prestigious lineages, but it is the case with Bodegas Aalto. A chance meeting between Mariano Garcia, former star winemaker of Vega Sicilia, and Javier Zaccagnini, former President of the governing body of the Ribera del Duero AOC, gave birth to this quality-oriented estate which produced its first vintage in 1999, a year after its creation.
