Description

In 1960 Don Juli Faustino Martinez started to use the Faustino name for his family wine business. The success in Spain and far abroad increased rapidly resulting in more vineyards, basements and ‚barricas‘. Faustino now owns 800 ha of vineyards, mostly located in the best parts of Rioja Alavesa,  and is responsible for the complete production process.

The Faustino Crianza is Faustino’s interpretation of the ‘Rioja new style’. A 100% Tempranillo from vineyards near the Carabric mountains. Their high altitude combined with very chill nights results in calmly grown/matured Tempranillo grapes resulting in a very complex wine. The grapes are fermented for 9 days at 28°C and it stays in contact with the skin for 20 days. After that it is matured in American oak barrels for 11 months and in French oak barrels for 5 months. The result is a cherry red wine, well balanced and with aromas of spices. The palate is meaty, warm and rouned with ripe tannins and more ripe red fruit with a hint of cherries in the finish.

Best served with fish and meat in wine sauces, sauted vegetables and young cheeses.
