AALTO 2019

Climatic conditions

The farming year began with a mild autumn and little precipitation.
A very dry winter started with -9ºC reaching at the end higher temperatures than normal for that time of the year.
Spring and summer characterized by little rain, only some rain showers in July and late August avoided the hydric stress of the vines.
The vegetative cycle of the vine developed with big variations of temperatures, alternating warm and atypical low temperatures of 4ºC for mid-June.
The ripening of the grapes happened under very good conditions and the harvest started on 24th September 2019.

 

Grape origin

100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) primarily from very old vines – 40 to 80 years old – from nine different villages in the province of Burgos and Valladolid.
The harvest was done by hand, in small boxes of 15 kilos that are thoroughly inspected, bunch by bunch, on the selection table.

 

Tasting notes

Deep purple red color. Notes of red fruits together with subtle aromas of spices coming from the wood emerge. AALTO 2019 is a very fresh and elegant wine. On the palate its broadness, structure and persistence are remarkable.

 

Average oak ageing

Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.
