Characteristics of Áster Finca El Otero
Áster Finca El Otero is a red wine from D.O Ribera del Duero produced by the winery Áster, belonging to the well-known group, La Rioja Alta.
Áster Finca El Otero is produced from the varietal Tinta del Pais, a typical varietal from Ribera del Duero, with the grapes originating from a small parcel of 4 hectares, Finca el otero. The vines are planted on gentle slopes with poor soils and a very low yielding harvest.
The process of production begins by a selection of the best grapes on arrival to the winery. The process of alcoholic fermentation takes place for 16 days, and then a malolactic fermentation for 3 months in French oak barrels, with a weekly bâtonnage of its lees.
Áster Finca El Otero is aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels, applying two racking processes in this time period.
