Luis Gutiérrez, December 2019

The 2017 Aalto was a surprise for the vintage. They had to select the grapes from their own vineyards, and they produced less wine. It feels a little lighter and fresher, more approachable at this point in time. The oak also seems to be more integrated. It's a very drinkable Aalto in its style. They only used some 20% new oak and possibly did a softer vinification. It's approachable now, but it should also develop nicely in bottle, as the year had more acidity. 220,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.

Now considered one of the great estates of Spain, Aalto proudly sits among Ribera del Duero's elite. Today the wine is a blend of over 110 different old vine plots sourced from several different villages and across all 3 distinct sub zones of the DO. Mariano Garcia has a rare gift for articulating the special character of these old vine plots producing delicious age-worthy wine year after year.
