The 2013 Aalto is a lighter wine, with less color, more freshness as it should be in a cooler vintage. It has a bright color which also denotes high acidity. The year was not easy and they had to work more on the origin of grapes: it has less from La Horra and more from La Aguilera, a cooler village, both in the province of Burgos, because in La Horra they had more frost problems. It's aged in less than 30% new barrels and the oak feels better integrated, definitively less oaky than other vintages. The nose has a combination of red and black fruit, spicy aromas and a sense of freshness, with even some violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with very fine tannins, abundant but well padded by juicy fruit, good acidity and freshness. This is a lot more fluid and balanced, with better-integrated oak than in the past. This is a fresher Aalto that should age nicely in bottle. 175,000 bottles were filled in July 2015 after 18 months in barrel.


Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 14 - Josh Raynolds - Aalto 2012 - 92/100
:

(all tempranillo, was aged for 24 months in a combination of French and American oak): Opaque ruby. Smoky, mineral-accented cherry and dark berries on the deeply perfumed nose. Palate-coating black and blue fruit flavors pick up violet pastille and mocha nuances with air. Fleshy and densely packed but lively too, finishing with noteworthy power and persistence and harmonious tannins.
