Aalto Ribera del Duero Spain 2015

Aalto 2015 is made by one of the best winemakers in the world, Mariana Garcia, winemaker of the iconic Vega Sicilia for 30 years. Aromas of dark cherry, cassis and vanilla are followed by the candied orange peel. On the palate lots of intense sweet black fruits, pencil lead, cloves, nutmeg and touch of mint. Very intense and a slightly warm palate but also there is a crisp theme of acidity to keep everything balanced with lots of ripe but silky tannins.

 AWARDS AND REVIEWS

93 points, Wine Spectator - This bold red is rich and mouth-filling, with ripe plum and currant fruit mingling with cocoa, espresso and mineral notes. The big tannins are well-integrated, and the balsamic acidity keeps this focused. Generous but remains balanced. Drink now through 2027.
