Faustino 1 Grand Reserva 2010



xcellent bottle age and vintage(2010 is a reasonably good vintage in Rioja, re Decanter)

  1. fantastic scores at 94/93 points level(JS, WE, Decanter)

  2. 2010 is a wine to keep(J Robinson)

  3. perfect provenance(frosted Burgundy-style bottle with a label bearing a Rembrandt style portrait of a Spaniard and the bottle itself wrapped with a thin, twisted-gold-wire mesh)

  4. being the top Gran Reserva from Faustino, with Roman numeral I( the middle range is V and the entry-level VII).

Vivino tasters generally comment positively. Canadian tasters seem to say that the fruit is not dropping. Against all the odds, most tasters will agree that the wine gives tastes with some complexities, complexing, elegance, style, classicism and length and is still fresh in the way of Rioja.

Scores are impressive.
