As the man who was, for thirty years, behind one of Spain’s most iconic wines, Vega
Sicilia, Mariano Garcia’s position as one of the country’s most highly regarded winemakers is beyond dispute.
Together with Javier Zaccagnini, former head of Ribera del Duero’s regulatory body, he is now the brainchild behind the sleekly modern Aalto winery that sits within the region. Thus, the person who knows where the best grapes are and the person who knows how to make them sing get together. How fortuitous.
Seductive, magical, astoundingly concentrated wines derived from very old vineyards, uniformly excellent and in limited quantities.
