Bodegas Aalto (Ribera del Duero)
Product not available in United States
Aalto PS 2016 comes from a vintage of a specially cold winter, a quite unusual spring and a summer with a warm start, which resulted in healthy, high-quality grapes, that were hand picked later on, bunch by bunch. So, we are in front of a referring wine in Spain that gets great reviews from both critics and public. Its market release showed freshness and lots of balance, although the evolution in bottle will make it gain complexity and roundness. If you have a great ocassion around the corner, this is one great candidate to be a part of it.
