Aalto PS 1800cl 2015
Aalto has only existed since 1999, however, with Mariano Garcia (Vega Sicilia winemaker for 30 years) at the helm the winery has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the most highly regarded producers in the Ribera del Duero region. PS is strictly limited to 20,000 bottles per year and the 2015 was produced from selected plots of 60 to 90-year-old Tempranillo vines in La Horra and La Aguilera. It is a wonderfully expressive release and manages to strike an excellent balance between power and elegance. Awash with intense black fruits, savoury complexity is now emerging with bottle age and the tannins are beginning to soften.
