Characteristics of Faustino I Gran Reserva 75 Aniversario

Faustino I Gran Reserva 75 Aniversario is a red wine from the Rioja D.O. region. This wine is produced by the Bodega Faustino as a homage to the president of the winery, Julio Faustino Martínez. The winery is based in Ovón (Álava) and has over 150 years of experience behind in the development of premium wines.

This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (92%) and Graciano (8%) grapes, taken from the 650 hectares of vineyards that lies in the Rioja Alavesa, between Laguardia and Ovón. The climate of the zone is mediterranean with a strong cantabrian influence. This zone also does not experience the cold winds from the north, since the Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural barrier of protection.

After the harvest, the grapes undergo fermentation in tanks for a period of 21days. After, the must is place in barrels to peform malolactic fermentation.

Finally, Faustino I Gran Reserva 75 Aniversario ages in an American Oak barrel for 11 months and in a French oak barrel for 14, being racked 4 times during the ageing process.

Alcohol: 13.5%
