Faustino I Gran Reserva 2005

SKU 43544


Intense, bright cherry red color. Aromatic and complex, with notes of tobacco, cedar and leather against a background of ripe fruit, jam and spices. On the palate, powerful yet velvety, with flavors of rich red fruit, licorice and minerals and smooth, ripe tannins. Pair with roasted lamb, duck, pork and beef. Also great with ham croquettes, hard cheeses and sauteed vegetables.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Faustino I Gran Reserva has a classical, oaky profile, with developed aromas but still keeping some fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and polished, but I expected a little more weight and depth. This brand represents around 40% of the total Gran Reserva Rioja sold in the world with 520,000 bottles produced. Drink Date: 2016-2020.
