Winemaker Notes

Deep purple red color, as corresponds to old Tempranillo grapes. On the nose we perceive good fruit intensity, a great deal of freshness and hints of well integrated wood. On the palate is complex, structured and elegant, with typical tints of licorice, coffee, tobacco, black fruits and spices, always within the personality of the AALTO style. This wine has a sweet character and could be drunk from the first moment, because it is shown rounded, with enveloping and balanced tannins, and showing a good acidity. AALTO 2016 will gain complexity over the years.

93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

When I tasted it, the 2016 Aalto had already been blended and taken out of the barrels, waiting to be bottled in a couple of weeks. It's still young and tender, with peachy aromas, a little creamy and with a soft palate where the tannins are fine-grained. In 2016, they used more vineyards, grapes from their own plots and others purchased from suppliers. 2016 was a higher-yielding year that provided fresh and balanced wines. It should age nicely.

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

Not far off the more limited production cuvée, the 2016 Aalto is another brilliant wine from this estate and is all Tempranillo brought up in 50% new oak. This ripe, sexy wine delivers loads of crème de cassis, vanilla, dried flowers, and spice box notes, with just a hint of background oak. Pure, incredibly well balanced, with sweet tannins, and medium to full body, it’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for 15 to 20 years.
