The highest-rated Spanish wine on Decanter’s ‘Most Exciting Red Wines in 2019’ list.

Tasting notes:
'Plenty of characteristic toasty oak aromas. Harmonious and perfectly balanced palate, with lovely juicy fruit underpinned by lively acidity. Drinking Window 2020 - 2029.' – Decanter, 93/100

'Classic Rioja aromas of vanilla, spice, tobacco and dried berry fruits carry this wine. On the palate, this warm-vintage gran reserva has energy from well-stored acidity, while the flavors include cherry, plum, mocha and a plethora of spices. Chocolate and tobacco flavors along with general warmth crowd the finish. Drink through 2030.' – Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

Alc: 13.5%

About Faustino:
Bodegas Faustino has been producing Gran Reserva Rioja for 150 years and is the largest Gran Reserva house. The chalky soils of the Alavesa region gives the wine remarkable freshness and structure; allowing for decades of ageing. Their Gran Reserva is only made in the best vintages and released far later than Rioja law requires.
