This carries to a medium to full-bodied, seamless Ribera del Duero with incredible purity of fruit, ripe, polished tannins, and a powerful yet weightless style that's something to behold. This is every bit as spectacular as the 2016 and is going to keep for 20-30 years in cold cellars.

This is an exuberant, ripe and generously oaked Tempranillo that was matured in new oak barrels for 19 months. It's from a generous crop that was harvested between the 24th of September and the 19th of October, a slow and late harvest of fully ripe grapes that developed plenty of aromas and flavors. It was also a cooler year. This is a long-distance runner. Today, the 2018 Aalto is more approachable and shows better balance. - Luis Gutiérrez
