Overview

The primary wine, known simply as Aalto Ribera del Duero comes from vines ranging in age from 40–80 years old supplemented with younger vine fruit that is about 15 years old. It is aged in for 18 months in French (85%) and American (15%) oak with half of the barrels new. It is a voluminous Ribera del Duero showing Mariano’s deft hand at capturing both the power and grace of a variety, Tinto Fino, that tends towards rusticity in the hot climate of this region.
