Professional Wine Reviews for Aldeasona Tinto Del Pais 2005

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2005 Aldeasona is a worthy successor to the superb 2004. Made from 100% Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) sourced from ungrafted 95+-year-old vines, it was aged for 23 months in new French oak barriques. Exotic spices, lavender, incense, espresso, black cherry, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of this dense, layered effort. In the glass loads of savory black fruits emerge along with plenty of fine-grained tannin. It will evolve effortlessly for another 5-6 years and drink well through 2030 if not longer.

Additional Information on Aldeasona Tinto Del Pais 2005

Winery: Aldeasona

Region: Castilla Y Leon

The ancient, arid and beautiful region of Castilla y Leon is the largest in Spain, and amongst the largest single 'regions' in any country of Europe. It has been famed throughout the centuries for its architecture, its people, its art and literature, and not least for its characterful and flavorful wines, which capture the beating heart and passion of Spain and Spanish culture. Castilla y Leon is essentially a vast plateau, and is extremely dry, with a poor soil structure which one might think would make viticulture difficult, if not impossible. However, Castilla y Leon has plenty of native grape varietals which are able to stretch their roots deep underground, to tap into the moisture and minerals which can be found there.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
