2005 Bodegas Aalto Ribera del Duero Aalto

2005 Bodegas AAlto Ribera del Duero AAlto – Spain, Castilla y León, Ribera del Duero (8/4/2009)
Espresso, dark chocolate, dark fruit and exotic spices on the engaging nose. Brooding palate, with slightly sweet dark fruit, balancing acidity, dark chocolate, dark coffee, sweet spices, soft, velvety tannins and well integrated alcohol. A lot of material, not fully giving itself, even on the second day after a nightly stay in the fridge. Excellent wine in a fairly modern style. (93 pts.)
