Aalto Bodegas y Viñedos

Aalto is a joint project founded by Mariano García, chief winemarker of thirty years at perhaps the most famous Ribera del Duero brand, Vega Sicilia, and Javier Zaccagnini, former head of Consejo Regulador de Ribera del Duero. The cooperation that started in 1998 has in the meantime received tremendous attention of the wine enthusiasts of the world and a multitude of praise from the experts. Ribera del Duero, next to Rioja, is one of the distinguished wine appellations of Spain, specializing in producing excellent wines using the local variety called Tinto Fino (resembling Tempranillo). Aalto manages over 40 hectares of old vineyards (between 50 and 100 years of age) in the at the altitude of 700 to 850 meters.

Aalto wine, now finally available to customers also in the Czech republic, is fermented in stainless steel barrels, before maturing in oak barrel for approximately 20 to 24 months, which would qualify it to be a reserva, if the Aalto would not prefer to identify the wine simply by its  appelation like the famous French chateaux do. Aalto produces about 200.000 bottles of wine per year, including the very exclusive Pagos Seleccionados (PS), maturing up to 36 months in oak barrels followed by another three months on bottle. Aalto PS is one of the most exquisite wines of Spain and is produced only in the best of years from the very rigorously selected grapes. Drinking this wine is an unforgettable experience indeed!
