Characteristics of Faustino V Reserva

Faustino V Reserva is a wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Faustino, owned by the Faustino Group. In this blend there is Tempranillo (90%), to which Mazuelo (10%) is added.

Having completed the harvest, the grapes ferment alcoholically for about 10 days at a temperature of less than 29º.

Faustino V Reserva subsequently begins a process of maceration with its own skins for about 20 days. Faustino V Reserva finally ages for 16 months in American white oak barrels from Missouri.

Before arriving on the market, it rests for another 24 months in bottle.

The Faustino group consists of seven wineries. These are divided between different denominations of Spanish origin, although three of them are in La Rioja.

Tasting notes Faustino V Reserva

It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Cherry red with reddish hues. Nose High intensity. It presents notes of red and candied fruit with toasted and spicy aromas, typical of the barrel. Taste It is soft and round. Wide flavour and sweet tannins which are perfectly integrated.
Sight Intense cherry red with a rust coloured rim. Nose Intense. Aromas of red and candied fruits combined with toasted notes and spices from the barrel. Taste Soft, round and fleshy. Notable, sweet tannins which are well integrated.
