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 V Reserva Tinto is a blend of Tempranillo (92%) and Mazuelo (8%). The grapes come from vineyards with different soils but all with high chalk levels. The climate is mild and the vinification classic, a  20 days maceration followed by a fermentation at 29 degrees. After that the wine is matured in American oak barrels for 16 months. The result is a cherry red coloured wine with aromas of fruit, wood and spices. The palate is rich, silky and full-bodied with mild tannins followed by a long and clean finish. This wine is best served with lamb chops, stews, red meat, poultry and a variety of cheeses. It has an aging potential of about 10 years.
