2019 Aatto - 94+ pts from Vinous

Drink­ing Win­dow 2024 — 2030

A cin­na­mon and clove dust­ing gives way to men­tho­lat­ed herbs and crushed black­ber­ries as the 2019 Aat­to blos­soms in the glass. This is tex­tu­ral­ly thrilling, creamy yet spry, with cool­ing acid­i­ty, min­er­al tones and cit­rus-tinged wild berries that stim­u­late the palate. There’s a sense of bound­less ener­gy as the 2019 fin­ish­es spicy and long. Crunchy red and blue fruits slow­ly fade. The Aat­to goes down too eas­i­ly, mak­ing it almost impos­si­ble to sense the 16% abv with­in. It’s a blend of 45% Counoise, 35% Mourvèdre and 20% Grenache. 94+ pts
