2018 Aatto - 93 pts from Vinous

Vivid ruby-red. An expan­sive bou­quet evokes ripe red fruits, san­dal­wood, vanil­la and pot­pour­ri. Sweet, seam­less, and pen­e­trat­ing on the palate, offer­ing ener­getic rasp­ber­ry and cher­ry cola fla­vors sharp­ened by a smoky min­er­al qual­i­ty and a touch of white pep­per. Fin­ish­es long and spicy, with sneaky tan­nins lend­ing shape and dis­creet grip. 40% new French oak pun­cheons. 93 pts
