Country of Origin
Laguardia and Oyon, and it is one of the largest owners of vineyards in Rioja. The land of Rioja Alavesa offers exceptional
qualities, a chalky-clay soil and an optimum microclimate. Love and respect for nature are two of the pillars on which the
philosophy of the winery is based.
Producer - Bodegas Faustino
smallest sub-region with the highest elevation in the Denomination of Origin Rioja. The Sierra Cantabria protects the area
from the cold and humid Northern winds, and the vineyards descend in terraces and ravines that shape this unique
ageing in the bottle. In recent years, we have incorporated new, environmentally-friendly grape growing practices to make
our vineyards increasingly sustainable. Among others, we employ precision viticulture to monitor canopy development in
different areas within the same plot.

Not as good as before
This wine has long been one of our firm favourites, however this last few times we have been rather disappointed, aside from a bottle that was corked, we have found the Faustino 1 recently to be much less complex, less body and less oak on the palate. Not the special treat that it was. Perhaps just a bad year??
shallow depth for price
I thought this had a thin taste and not the heavy number expected.
I bought this wine for Christmas Day lunch. I have had the Faustino V several times and loved it but this was so disappointing. It is average at best but lacked any real depth or liveliness that I would expect from a Rioja.
Rich fruity wine went well with Beef Bourguignon , It was delicious with cheeses and prosciutto. Definitely will buy again.
