Faustino Crianza 2010
Faustino Crianza is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja region produced by the Faustino winery. This wine is made using only Tempranillo grapes.
The grapes used to make Faustino Crianza are taken from the 650 hectares of vineyards owned by the winery. These vineyards are situated between the towns of Laguardia and Oyón. The care of the vineyard, as well as the subsequent harvest, are carried out following the teachings of decades of dedication to the world of wine in La Rioja.
The various phases of the vinifaction process and production of this wine are performed using conventional methods. Before being bottled, Faustino Crianza is then aged in american oak barrels for 14 months.
Faustino is one of the most well known and respected wineries from Spain. The two supporting pillars of their work, according to the winery, is the love and respect for nature and the vineyards.
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.
