The 2010 Aalto was assembled and ready for bottling when I visited the winery. It is already showing great precision and focus on the nose with vanilla-tinged dark cherry and cassis fruit, followed by an undertow of candied orange peel. The palate is already displaying wonderful balance, with supple, very fine tannins and a luscious, sweet candied finish that offers blood orange and tangerine-infused dark fruit. There is a crisp theme of acidity to keep everything balanced. This is very promising. Drink 2016-2030.

Opaque violet color. Ripe dark berry, cola and floral aromas, with a strong accent of incense. Fat, sweet and palate-staining, offering intense red and dark berry preserve flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Powerful yet comes off as quite graceful. Finishes very long and sweet, with supple tannins and persistent spiciness.

It is ironic that one of the youngest properties in the region has one of the most prestigious wine lineages, but it is the case with Bodegas Aalto. A chance meeting between Mariano Garcia, former star winemaker of Vega Sicilia, and Javier Zaccagnini, former President of the governing body of the Ribera del Duero AOC, gave birth to this quality-oriented estate which produced its first vintage in 1999, a year after its creation.

The winery has acquired some of the best vineyards in Spain's Ribera del Duero, including 32 hectares in 3 different sub-regions of Ribera del Duero -- two in the province of Valladolid and one in the province of Burgos. They also have 10 hectares of 60 year-old vines in the Burgos village of Quemada. In 2004, Mariano Garcia was recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of "50 Most Influential Winemakers."
