Aalto 2015

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Big and strong, a bit of a bruiser. This is a smack you in the face, bold tempranillo. I like a bit more refinement and balance, but this shows what a Ribera Del Duero temp can be!

quite a good ribera. The grape is mainly tinta, quite alcoholic (15º). The best of all Aalto. But check that price ! 28€ in Spain

Opaque ruby. Assertive aromas of blackberry, bitter cherry, spicecake and floral pastilles. Sweet and expansive on entry, then tighter in the middle, with an alluringly perfumed quality to the dark berry, cherry-cola and vanilla flavors. Finishes sappy and long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and grip.

2011 Aalto is the cuvee produced with Tempranillo grapes from nine villages across Ribera del Duero, some in Valladolid and the majority in Burgos. It was fermented with indigenous yeasts and was aged for 20 months in 50% new barrels and 50% used ones. Most of the oak is from France, but 15% of the barriques are made of American wood. The wine shows the house style of ripe, exuberant and well-oaked reds, with some lactic hints and surprisingly, fresh red fruit intermixed with the aromas of riper, darker fruit and plenty of spicy oak, developing pine needle-like notes with time in the glass, and later, ripe peach. The palate is medium to full-bodied with abundant, fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins. It shows good balance and moderate acidity ending with some lactic flavors. 230,000 bottles produced. I tasted from half bottles (that is not ideal), which are not sold, only used for tastings. The wine evolves quickly once the bottle is opened, so I think this ripe vintage should be drunk in the shorter term. Drink now–2017.

Opaque purple color. Intensely perfumed nose displays spicy dark berry and floral character, with zesty minerals and black tea adding complexity. Pliant blackberry and cherry flavors are impressively fresh, becoming deeper and sweeter with air. An admirably balanced wine, playing depth against vivacity and finishing with outstanding clarity and length. This is the most elegant example of this bottling Iandrsquo;ve tasted.

This is an outstanding value for an exceptional Spanish wine. It is rich, powerful and loaded with concentrated ripe dark fruit andmdash; black raspberry, blueberry and black cherry. Dark crimson red in color, the wine is fresh and drinkable now, but is also age-worthy. Beautifully balanced with spice, oak and tannins, the mouthwatering finish goes on and on. Perfect for pairing with braised beef, spicy sausages or a juicy grilled steak.

The 2005 Aalto, made from 100% Tinto Fino, is a deep purple color with an enticing nose of wood smoke, bacon, floral notes, spice box, and blackberry. This leads to a powerful, layered, intense wine already beginning to show complex flavors. Structur... Alex Lallos. A Tempranillo wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2005 Aalto 750ml
