Degustation notes

Distinctive dark ruby? colour, a slightly mature, open bouquet with hints of spices and vanilla, a classic Rioja nose, intense aromas of juicy berries, medium strength, nicely balanced, with supple tannins and a long finish. A beautiful classic wine.

    Natürlich kann er nicht mit den grossen Riojas mithalten. Aber für 20 Franken ist das ein sehr guter Wein! Der Preis ist auch deshalb sehr gut, weil der Wein bereits in einem sehr guten Trinkalter angeboten wird. An Weihnachten würde ich ihn wahrscheinlich nicht auftischen. Würde ihn aber in der höchsten Klasse der Tischweine einordnen. Auf jeden Fall sehr gutes Preis/Qualitäts Verhältnis.

    Le Faustino est un vin qui se garde facilement 30 ans voir plus, ce qui permet de conserver un vin de l‘annee de naissance d‘un enfant à prix accessible. Ce vin de 2005 est délicieux
