Áster Crianza is a red wine with DO Ribera del Duero elaborated with 100% Tempranillo (Tinta del País) grapes. It has obtained 91 Peñín points.

100% Tinta del País from the estate-owned Fuentecojo, Otero, Joven and La Cueva vineyards surrounding our winery in Anguix, Burgos. They are planted on silt loam soils located at an altitude close to 780 meters above sea level. We harvest the grapes manually, first thing in the morning, when the temperatures are lower, cutting only those clusters that have reached optimal and are in perfect condition, preserving the integrity of the grains until they come into the winery in 20 kg boxes.

After passing through the sorting table and gentle destemming and crushing, the grapes were placed in tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature below 28 °C. After 16 days of fermentation and maceration, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, with weekly bâttonages over a two-month period. The wine was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, 70% in new wood and the rest in barrels with two wines.
