Product Description

This is the new vintage - an excellent one, incidentally- of Áster Crianza, a varietal Tinta del País  (Tempranillo) made from estate vineyards located in Anguix (Burgos), at an altitude around 800 metres.

Produced by Bodega Áster, the grapes were meticulously harvested and selected. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed, gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 19 days under controlled temperature.

Then this Spanish red wine from Ribera del Duero went through malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, with weekly stirrings of the lees, for a period of 2 months.

After that, the red wine Áster Crianza 2020 was blended and aged for 16 months into 75% new and 25% 2nd year French oak barrels.

Decant this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Pair this red wine from Ribera del Duero with hearty meat dishes.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Áster Crianzais medium ruby with a purplish rim.


Intense and elegant aromas of black cherries, undergrowth and plum liqueur, typical of a varietal Tinta del País red wine, punctuated by notions of green tobacco leaves, vanilla, balsam, cedar and clove.


Surprisingly elegant and well defined, this wine of Bodega Áster has a crisp acidity, bold tannins and a great overall balance. Medium finish with remembrances of graphite, balsam and withered leaves.

Our personal opinion

Because of its gentleness and finesse, the wine Áster Crianza 2020 is a Ribera that clearly winks at Rioja. An excellent value.

I think this wine will live for some years, because it feels very young on the palate. It is easy to drink and quite elegant. 4 stars.
