'Limpid ruby. Bright, spice-accented aromas of black raspberry, cherry and black pepper. Light-bodied and energetic on the palate, offering zesty red and dark berry flavors and a hint of licorice. Finishes clean and brisk, with no obvious tannins and a hint of jamminess. Drink 2021-2024.' – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 88/100

'This red shows lots of freshness, with red berry, orange peel and savory spice notes that are enhanced with leather and leafy underpinnings. The tannins show some grip. Drink now through 2025.' – Wine Spectator, 88/100

'Clean, bright, red cherry colour ruby rim. On the nose, intense aromas, integrate fresh fruits, and sweet hints due to the barrel ageing. Structured and elegant on the palate. Medium – long finish, with sweet barrel ageing notes.' – Winemaker

Producer information Bodegas Faustino has been producing Gran Reserva Rioja for 150 years and is the largest Gran Reserva house. The chalky soils of the Alavesa region gives the wine remarkable freshness and structure; allowing for decades of ageing. Their Gran Reserva is only made in the best vintages and released far later than Rioja law requires.
