    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

    Grosser Klassiker - Dieser Rioja von Faustino offenbart die ganze Güte eines Gran Reservas. Eleganz, Frische, Komplexität und Langlebigkeit. Wenn Sie auf der Suche nach einem optimalen Festtagswein sind, dann sind Sie hier mehr als auf der richtigen Spur.
