Faustino Crianza DOCa Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014
Made from 100% Tempranillo. Aged in American oak for 15 months. Deep ruby in colour. Dark cherry and smoked meat on the nose, with notes of dried rose and herbs adding complexity. Gently sweet dark fruit flavours are underscored by a dusty, leathery quality and framed by supple tannins. Very old-school in style, it offers good finishing lift and smoky persistence.
“Complex aromas of chocolate, walnut, and blackberry follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and linear finish. Complex and decadent.”
