Mariano Garcia developed his winemaking reputation at Vega Sicilia before joining Aalto in partnership with Javier Zaccagnini. Their 2009 is a juicy and approachable tempranillo, rich with candied cherry notes that fill out the rough tannins—a texture that suggests a pairing with pernil.

A fine Sauvignon Blanc, showing the crisp acidity you want in this variety. The flavors are exceptionally ripe in pineapples, tart green apples, vanilla and pie spices. Easy to pair with today's ethnic cuisines, from Mexican and Indian to Vietnamese.
