Review

Aalto is the emblematic wine of a cellar which, within the space of very few years, became a Ribera del Duero reference point. Vintage after vintage, its wines and especially Aalto, at a more affordable price, are on the receiving end of excellent critiques from the experts and highly esteemed by enthusiasts. Rightly so indeed.

Aalto is a wine of great balance and complexity, full of powerfulness and personality, which owes its fine qualities to magnificent Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) grapes, the diversity of the soils and the vast experience of Mariano García, the oenologist who for thirty years was in charge of wine production at Vega Sicilia.

Essential Ribera Del Duero

Aalto is big and brawly wine that combines ripe fruit with creamy toasted oak flavour flawlessly. This is my number one go-to wine in Ribera Del Duero and one of my favourites overall. Worth getting couple bottles from every vintage.

Elegante

Buena relación calidad - precio. Elegante, un vino expresivo, incluso diría que aterciopelado. Un gran vino para grandes ocasiones, no defrauda. Volveré a por más.

Vinazo!!

Un gran vino desde el primer sorbo, que te envuelve con un sabor redondo. Recomendable dejar airear. Un Ribera excelente.

Exzellenter Wein

Dieser Wein ist sein Geld wert. Ich trinke gerne Spanische Weine und wollte einmal ausprobieren ob bei einem höheren Preis man dies auch schmeckt. Beim Aalto würde ich dies bestätigen. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

Klasse Wein

Super tolle Weine, super Körper nachhaltig im Geschmack, so muss Rotwein sein. Bei Hispavinus zu bestellen ist angenehm und Problem los.

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.
