AALTO PS 2018

Climatic conditions

Winter was warm and there were rainfalls at the end of this season. Springtime was also rainy. The budbreak occurred under damp and mild temperature conditions and only a few frosts in spring happened. June and July were warm and rainy but not in excess. August brought a heat wave followed by some temperate days and slight showers in September that were beneficial to harvest perfectly healthy and ripe grapes.

 

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 and thoroughly inspected, bunch by bunch, on the selection table.

 

Tasting notes

Very deep red intensity. On the nose intense ripe dark fruit and ink along with elegant mineral notes arise. On the palate this wine is robust, structured, and its tannins are silky and smooth. It is a long and full of nuances wine with a good ageing potential.

 

Average oak ageing

Aged for 19 months in new French oak barrels.
