Faustino Rioja – Excellence through Tradition
With Winemaker José Maria Moreda Moro
Friday, November 19, 2021, 4pm eastern, 3pm Central

We all love red wines with bottle age! Bodegas Faustino is an uncontested leader in the seductive style of mature Rioja, with complex aromas and flavors of dried fruit, exotic spices, leather and tobacco, with velvety tannins. The largest vineyard holders in Rioja Alavesa, Faustino was established in 1861 and is now owned by fourth generation sisters Carmen & Lourdes Martinez Sabada. That’s 160 years of family tradition producing beautiful wines that are fully mature upon release. We’ll taste 3 Faustino bottlings: 2015 Rioja Reserva V, 2010 Rioja Gran Reserva I, 1996 Rioja Gran Reserva I. And Faustino’s Winemaker José Maria will be joining us live from Spain! Don’t miss the chance to discover these exceptional, accessible, mature wines. “This bodega is one of Rioja’s best sources for wines that deliver serious bang for the buck. The Reserva and Gran Reserva bottlings show lots of aromatic complexity and silky texture on release.” — Josh Raynolds, Vinous
