Bodegas Aster was conceived with enthusiasm, wisdom and patience. To find the most appropriate estate, La Rioja Alta sought both the counsel of the old growers in the area and the advice of professors of viticulture. They studied and analyzed soils, grapes and climates in different sub-areas. Finally, Anguix, Burgos proved to be the ideal location.

Deep, dark cherry red, almost black; clean and bright. Very intense forest berry nose, with, redcurrants, blackberries, violets and fennel leading to a complex background of sweet spices, bay leaves, black olives, licorice, cedar, incense, tobacco leaves and cocoa powder. Powerful, in the mouth, with great structure and balance; mineral, with a pleasant acidity and creamy tannins providing a delectable, elegant mouthfeel. Long aftertaste with ripe dark fruit, licorice and bakery notes that leave marked, pleasant final sensations.

An elegant Ribera del Duero which pairs well with roasts, spicy stews and aged cheeses.
