Amazing Spanish red wine

Product of Bodegas Faustino with a unique price-quality ratio. It is very complex and elegant with aromas of ripe fruit. Elegant in mouth and excellent balance, with a silky finish. This wine goes very well with tapas or meat dishes. We will certainly order this wine again soon.

Faustino I Tinto Gran Reserva 2001
Very good wine that did not break the bank. The smell seemed to be like coffee.
