18 months in French Oak
"a vintage of great quality for Los Astrales"
"one of the top producers from Ribera del Duero"
"intense nose of black fruits, spices, balsamic, and toasted notes, great balance, lingering finish, great intensity and backbone, a firm and fine tannicity"
"Astrales is a sophisticated ribera, far away from stereotypes and at the opposite site of any excess, a red wine with a European cut. Clearly defined with a complex bouquet and preponderance of truly freshness and balance"

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA
A mature and complex wine obtained from the best Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella varietals laid out to partially dry for 90-110 days.
The wine is vinified in the traditional manner and aged for an extended period French oak barriques. A silky-smooth wine that effectively reflects the characteristics of the terroir in which it originates.
It pairs well with autumnal and winter dishes such as braised meats and casseroles, but above all it is a wine to linger and meditate upon. Serve at 18°-20° C (64°-68° F) in a large glass.
