About Our Ratings

Pin It



Faustino 2010 Rioja, DOC
Bodegas Faustino is best known for their incredible array of Reserva and Gran Reserva wines that they produce more of than any other Rioja estate. But in addition to those celebrated, venerable bottlings they also produce outstanding young wines like this 2010. 100% Tempranillo, it's aged just 4 months in American oak barrels but for the young wines they use new oak to give a spicy edge to the bright Tempranillo fruit. And this 2010 has beautiful black cherry notes that are finessed with zesty, tobacco and cedar spiciness. Supple and round but lively and vibrant. This is a delicious red to enjoy now with your favorite zesty foods.

          Comments about Faustino 2010 Rioja:

          This starts off with lovely ripe berry and red cherry notes surrounded by all that typical Rioja charm of tobacco, smoky cedar and hints of leather. It is soft and smooth but the acidity is quite lively adding balance and vibrancy. A very food friendly wine and at this price it offers serious value.

          • Pairs Well With:
          • Beef, Game, Pizza and Pasta
