AALTO XX 20th ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION (3 litre) | BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS AALTO | RIBERA DEL DUERO

THE XX ANNIVERSARY WINE

"The XX Anniversary wine is a coupage of 6 barrels (225 litres each) from different vintages (2016, 2017 and 2018) that reflects Aalto’s philosophy at its best. A structured and elegant wine that has been aged, depending on the vintage, from 20 to 40 months in barrels. Three different vintages among each other, all of them rated “very good” by the D.O. Regulatory Control Board.

The 2016 vintage was characterized by an atypical warm weather, very different from the continental weather we used to have in this region. This fact gave our wines a magnificent complexity.

Due to droughts and frosts the 2017 vintage production was drastically reduced throughout Ribera del Duero. Even so, and thanks to a great job at the vineyards and at the winery, we made a great vintage and a fruity and expressive wine.

Finally, 2018 brought the perfect harvest with optimal weather conditions that led to an excellent ripening of the grapes.

20 years ago we started the Aalto project, and to celebrate this anniversary we assembled these 6 barrels in late October 2020 to create our XX Anniversary wine. We have selected some barrels from different estates and vintages which we consider to be special and with a longer storage capacity: 450 bottles (3-litre format only) of this unique wine."
