Colour: Picota red with a good, intense colour that tints the glass.
Nose: Powerful and intoxicating red and black ripe fruit aromas; vegetable notes and spicy tones.
Taste: Broad, powerful, mature but with a good acidity in all round. Fleshy and fine tannins. An extraordinary finish.
Bodegas Aalto has managed, despite its short history, to become one of the producers of reference in DO Ribera del Duero, achieving success at an international level from both critics and consumers.
This single variety Tinto Fino is produced by Quintanilla de Arriba (Valladolid). Aalto is produced from grapes grown from old vines planted in pots between 40 to 100 years old. The grape is harvested manually, in 15 kg boxes, and it is transported quickly to the winery in order for it not to lose the freshness.
In the winery, there is a selection of the bunches that are in the best condition, following the process and the aging in barrels for 20 months, 50% are new French oak barrels and 50% are 1 to 3 years in French oak and American oak barrels.
Aalto is a wine with a great storage capacity and a long evolution in the bottle for 15 to 20 years. It is recommended to decant it before enjoying.
