Aalto 2015, Ribera del Duero Spain

34.50

Aalto 2015 is a classic Ribera del Duero made by one of the best winemakers in the world! Aromas of dark cherry, cassis and vanilla are followed by the candied orange peel. On the palate lots of intense sweet black fruits, pencil lead, cloves, nutmeg and touch of mint. Very intense and a slightly warm palate but also there is a crisp theme of acidity to keep everything balanced with lots of ripe but silky tannins.

This is a classic Ribero del Duero that is consistently good. The wine is not rated yet but 2015 vintage for Ribera del Duero is considered to be "excellent". So expect even a better wine than very good 2014!
