A star in Ribera del Duero
Celeste crianza 2016 is an opulent wine brimming with fruit, body and colour: as unique as the night sky in the Ribera del Duero.

Cherry red color with garnet highlights. Delicious, voluptuous aroma of very ripe black fruit (blueberries) with fine roasted coffee and dried fruit (dried plum) notes. Dense, fleshy, with sensuous flavor sensations that are impressively persistent.
Given the wine’s tannin and fruit characteristics, it pairs beautifully with a wide variety of meat dishes. Serve at 14–16°C.
Celeste is born 895 meters above sea level, where the vines and the sky form a magical connection, resulting in a wine filled with the freshness, emotion, and intensity of a starry night.
