“The 2010 Aster Crianza feels young and unevolved, with notes of red and black berry-fruit, spicy undertones and a medium-bodied palate with a velvety texture and fine tannins. It is extremely fresh, with good acidity. This is easy-to-drink and gives lots of pleasure. Quite representative of Ribera and a good value too. Drink now-2017.
Aster is the Ribera del Duero winery from La Rioja Alta in Haro. They own 95 hectares planted around the winery in the village of Anguix, close to Roa in the province of Burgos. These are the best wines I’ve tasted from them, with better balance and less oak than in the past.”
