Astrales Ribera del Duero, ES, 2016, 6 liter bottle
Description: Anguix, a small village in the center of the world-renowned Ribera del Duero growing region, is home to a winery focused on the production of two iconic Tempranillos: Astrales and Astrales Christina. Bodegas Los Astrales has added a new facet to the more traditional Ribera del Duero with the modern style of their wines. The unique sites in the heart of the growing region, 100% Tempranillo, 18 months of barrel aging and the exceptional skill of oenologist José Hidalgo are the secret of this exceptional Ribera wine value. Juicy-smooth attack with again lots of caramel and now also fine coffee toasting, cinnamon plums and chocolate cherries in the seductive middle, elegant and punchy at the same time, round tannins and ripe cherries until the dessert-like finish. A complex astrales and at the same time exuding much elegance, from the top vintage 2016.
