Aalto 2014 Ribera Del Duero


92 Points by Robert Parker

Dark purple. The nose has intense fruit aromas with wood in the background, bringing complexity without detracting from the sense of freshness. The palate is broad, structured and elegant as befits such exceptional phenolic maturity, with no hard edges and a tannic structure in perfect harmony with alcohol and acidity. The typical flavors of the Tempranillo are all present – licorice, black fruits and roasted coffee, alongside spices and fresh tobacco – provided by an impeccable wood aging. This wine is very long and will no doubt gain in complexity over the years
