Bodegas Aalto, Ribera del Duero, Spain 2017

Regular price $ 54.13

The 2017 Aalto was a surprise for the vintage. They had to select the grapes from their own vineyards, and they produced less wine. It feels a little lighter and fresher, more approachable at this point in time. The oak also seems to be more integrated. It's a very drinkable Aalto in its style. They only used some 20 new oak and possibly did a softer vinification. It's approachable now, but it should also develop nicely in bottle, as the year had more acidity.
