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

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
