Faustino Rioja Gran Reserva I 2001

Faustino Rioja Gran Reserva I 750ml 2001      
Sku: 1879391*

Rioja Alavesa, Spain From mature vines (planted in the mid-1960s) in Faustino’s estate vineyards in Rioja, Spain.

Tasting notes
Color - Intense, bright cherry red. Bouquet - Aromatic and complex, with notes of tobacco, cedar and leather against a background of ripe fruit, jam and spices. Taste - Powerful yet velvety, with flavors of rich red fruit, licorice and minerals and smooth, ripe tannins.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Dec 2013)
The 2001 Faustino I Gran Reserva is a modern rendition of the old-time classical Riojas, with black rather than red fruit notes and developed aromas of leather and game, black licorice and Chinese ink. It’s medium-bodied, with good acidity and it has a slightly dry finish. I’d have expected a bit more meat and concentration from this vintage. Drink 2014-2019.

Wine maker notes
Grapes are de-stemmed and undergo fermentation at 86F. The grapes then goes through a 27-day maceration period with light pumping over, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wines age for 28 months in oak (80% American and 20% French) and spend 36 months aging in the bottle before they are released, for a total ageing of 64 months.

Technical notes
85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo

Food pairing
Flavorful fish like tuna , red meat, game and medium cured cheeses such as Manchego and emmental.
