Aalto PS - From The Ex-Winemaker Of Vega Sicila

Aalto PS is a gem of a wine. Made by Mariano Garcia, the genius winemaker at Vega Sicilia for 30 years, the pedigree here is immense, and the value equally compelling. The 96-point 2020 is a superb vintage. We are delighted to have some to offer directly from our cellars in London. 

Since its creation in 1999, Aalton has, in the words of Luis Gutierrez, become one of the icons of modern Ribera del Duero”It was Garcia’s first new project after leaving Vega Sicilia, and the wines are unabashedly hedonistic, richly decadent and dramatic. Yet, they draw freshness from the high-altitude vineyards with surprisingly cool climates and mineral complexity from deep-rooted old vines. These are sophisticated and layered wines of world-class quality.

The 2020 is exceptional, especially for “fans of oaky and ripe Tempranillo” for Luis Gutierrez. We have just 15 cases available; do take a look and let us know if you would like any. 

2020 Aalto PS
15cs (6*75cl OWC) @ £350 per case in bond
95 points Luis Gutierrez
The heady and ripe 2020 PS follows the house style and the profile of the regular Aalto from the same vintage, with slightly higher ripeness, more creaminess and toastier oak. It’s predictable and very good at it, with abundant, slightly dusty tannins and some chalkiness in the pungent, intense and oaky finish. It has 15% alcohol and mellow acidity. For fans of oaky and ripe Tempranillo. 35,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2022 after 21 months in new French oak barrels. (2023) Drink 2024-2030
Offered subject to final confirmation. Available from our cellars in London.
