Faustino Rioja Tempranillo VII 2010

Faustino Rioja Tempranillo VII 750ml 2010     
Sku: 52117

Faustino’s Reserva and Gran Reserva wines are all estate grown and bottled. The vineyards are located in the upper portion of the Rioja Alavesa, at an altitude of 1,200-1,800 feet. Here, the climate is relatively cool thanks to the maritime influence of the Atlantic Ocean to the north, and the vines thrive in the area’s chalky soil.

Tasting notes
Color - Lively red with ochre hues Bouquet - Scents of redcurrant and cherry with a touch of vanilla Taste - Well-balanced and velvety flavors of red cherry and raspberry . A long, expressive finish of vanilla and toasty oak.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points (Jun 2013)
This wine leads with smoky and earthy aromas with a hint of restrained red fruit. The flavor is tart with raspberries and cinnamon. The texture is leathery with plenty of mouth coating tannins. Refreshing and smooth.

Grapes are de-stemmed and undergo fermentation at 75F. The grapes then go through a 16 day maceration period followed by 10 months of ageing in 100% American oak. The wine spends an additional 6 months in the bottle before being released.
