Artisan Family Winery

Asterisco Pago de Cubas D.O. Toro

Excellent artisan wine. Handpicked grapes of course, the wine is aged in French oak for 6-8 months.

Bottled unfiltered to retain all the natural goodness, so there will be some sediment.

This is excellent value.

The harvest is manual, in 15 kg fruit boxes, after a selection process in the field, leaving the bunches that are not in perfect condition, a second selection is made upon arrival of the grapes to the winery, unloading one by one the boxes on a table, where another selection is made again, to ensure that the grapes that enter the tanks comply with the required quality standards. We destemmed but do not crush, and so the grape enters stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, where it makes a cryomaceration between 5-7 days for greater extraction of fruit and color. Subsequently, the alcoholic fermentation begins during which 3 daily traces are carried out with batonage and a temperature not exceeding 24ºC. Once this fermentation is finished, the wine is macerated for 15 days and subsequently taken to Bordeaux French oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. When this second fermentation is finished, it is aged in French oak barrels 6-8 months. It is not filtered, clarified or stabilized, so that natural precipitations of the wine itself can appear.
