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.

Great service and fast delivering. Really good packaging.

Good

It delivers what it promises. Not to my taste but a very good example of Ribera del Duero. Lots of American oak which isn't that interesting nowadays

3rd Order

This is now my 3rd order of this wine.....so I'm obviously a bit of a fan. If you looking at the ratings you will see its very popular, and rightly so! Its not cheap so maybe a bit of a special occasion wine...but it is delicious.

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.

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...
