Faustino I Gran Reserva 1995

Faustino I Gran Reserva 750ml 1995   
Sku: 9591

From mature vines (planted in the mid-1960s) in Faustino’s estate vineyards in Rioja, Spain.

Tasting notes
Intense, bright cherry red. ------------------------------------------ Aromatic and complex, with notes of tobacco, cedar and leather against a background of ripe fruit, jam and spices. ------------------------------------------ Powerful yet velvety, with flavors of rich red fruit, licorice and minerals and smooth, ripe tannins.

Wine maker notes
Grapes were harvested in late September and early October. They were de-stemmed and underwent temperature-controlled fermentation, then maceration with light pumping over, followed by malolactic fermentation.

Technical notes
12.5% abv

Food pairing
Excellent with roasted lamb, duck, pork and beef. A great accompaniment to ham croquettes, hard cheeses, and sauteed vegetables.
