Discover More About Our Products

Faustino I Gran Reserva 2009 is the flagship wine of Bodegas Faustino. It's made from Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo grapes from estates located in Oyón and Laguardia. It's very complex and elegant, with a broad expression of very ripe fruit. It has an elegant palate and excellent balance, with a silky finish.

We recommend enjoying this wine with any type of grilled meat and mushrooms, fish like tuna and cod, and medium-aged cheeses like Emmental or Gruyére.
