2021 Aalto, PS, Ribera del Duero DO
100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) primarily from very old vines, 60 to 90 years old, from selected plots in La Horra and La Aguilera. The harvest was done by hand, in small boxes of 15 kilos that are thoroughly inspected, bunch by bunch.
Intense purple colour. Black fruits together with spicy nuances displayed in the glass confer on this wine complexity and elegance on the nose. It is fresh on the mouth; its soft and silky tannins give it great intensity and volume. The wine shows solid core of small, black forest fruit, concentrated and rich without being jammy. As with regular Aalto, tannins are very fine and currently hiding behind soft wood.
The PS is not made every year, as their mission is to only create a wine of the highest, most consistent quality. This is a proper "Vin de Garde" which will need 3-4 years in the bottle to harmonize - there is a lot there to harmonize and if you have the patience, you will be amply rewarded.

2021 Aalto, Ribera del Duero DO
VM94/100
100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) primarily from very old vines, 40 to 80 years old, from nine different villages in the province of Burgos and Valladolid. The harvest was done by hand, in small boxes of 15 kilos that are thoroughly inspected, bunch by bunch.

This wine shows an elegant purple colour in the glass. On the nose it expresses the aromatic potential of the Tinta Fino with its red fruits and liquorice nuances. The barrel ageing has conferred spicy notes. Notes are quite consistent displaying classic Aalto richness and structure. Right now, there is still fair bit of soft wood on the nose wrapped in deep dark late summer fruit. The tannins are so finely polished that it feels quite creamy on the palate. What stands out in 2021 is juicy freshness.
This wine will easily evolve over the next 5-6 years, and is certainly excellent value for a wine scoring 94 points.

2014 Arrocal, Ribera del Duero, Crianza Meloso
One of Spain's top red wine–producing regions, Ribera del Duero is located in the northwest of the country, about 160km north of Madrid or Ribera del Duero 125 km south-west of Rioja.

The region benefits from a Mediterranean climate, with a continental influence and an extreme nature; it boasts dry summers, long and harsh winters, low rainfall (400-500 mm/year average) and a large difference in temperatures throughout the year (from -20°C to 42°C ).
This results in grapes that are small in size, with thick skins, that have benefited from an optimal slow and late ripening period leading to concentrated flavours.

Bodega Arrocal is a family owned winery, run by Rosa Arroyo and Moisés Calvo, who are native to the area.

AGE OF THE VINEYARD: 30 years. ALTITUDE: 830 meters sea level.
VARIETY: 100% Tinto Fino. (Tempranillo)
HARVEST: Manual in 16 Kg boxes and selection table.
Aging: 12 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels and 12 months ageing in the bottle.
Aromas and flavours of black and forest fruits - blueberries, blackberries and plums, with spicy touches such as vanilla, nutmeg and cloves.
This Crianza is nicely balanced, with toasted and balsamic nuances of black liquorice and forest floor.
Harmonious and velvety tannins, which provide structure and complexity.

Serve at around 14°C with meat stews cheese platters, fatty fish, roasted vegetables and rice or pasta dishes.

2020 Bardos, Ribera del Duero, Romantica
Bodega Bardos located in Quintanilla de Onésimo in Spain’s Ribera del Duero region, this is a characteristically robust red, made principally from Tempranillo grapes with the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon to the blend.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of just under 1000 metres above sea level and the grapes are hand harvested.
The high diurnal range helps to maintain the grapes’ freshness alongside the full-bodied nature of this wine.

The result is a nicely balanced Crianza, with the effect of 14 months’ maturation in used oak adding delicious sweet spices to the rich dark fruit flavours of blackberry, bramble, Morello cherry, with a hint of tobacco and leather.
