Review

Aalto PS is a wine with an unmistakable personality, robust and mature, yet at the same time possessing great balance and finesse. As indicated by the acronym, it's made with grapes from selected parcels (PS, Pagos Seleccionados), vineyards which stand out due to their particular qualities of ripeness, balance and exceptional concentration, nurturing very old vines that range from 60 to 90 years old, located within the municipal boundaries of La Horra, La Aguilera and, since the 2014 vintage, Piñel de Abajo as well.

Resulting from such high quality grapes as these and after an ageing period of about 18 months, comes Aalto PS, an excellent wine for cellaring. Although it can be drunk as soon as released, it's always much better after some years of evolution in bottle, since it becomes more refined and complex over the passage of time. Another great wine bearing the hallmark of Mariano García, the profoundness of the Ribera del Duero and all the freshness of the Tempranillo.

Marvilhoso

Vinho forte e equilibrado com aromas que impressionam bastante. Um vinho que tem muita personalidade e não passará em branco.

Ein Top-Wein!

Hat sich Mariano García nochmals so gesteigert? Ich denke ja, denn das Mikroklima in seinen Pagos Seleccionados allein kann nicht der Grund sein für diesen Ausnahmewein. Für mich der beste Jahrgang, den Mariano seit seinem Weggang von Vega Sicilia je gemacht hat. Freilich befindet er sich zurzeit noch in der Fruchtphase, aber so filigran und seidenweich - Chapeau!

Best of Ribera

This wine will need time to show its full potential. It is super concentrated and powerfull yet with a soft silky texture. It will be hart to keep "hands off" but time in the cellar will be rewarded with more complexity.

Aalto

Aalto

Aalto was founded in 1999 by Mariano García and Javier Zaccagnini and within a few years it had already begun to be regarded as one of the denomination's best. Recognised today as being among Spain's best, its wines reveal all the potential of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) variety, the exceptional nature of the Ribera del Duero and the craftsmanship of a winemaker of Mariano García's standing, the oenologist and owner of Bodegas Mauro and former oenologist with Bodegas Vega Si...
