More information

The Icon Edition Reserva Especial of Bodegas Faustino from La Rioja shows a dense ruby red color in the wine glass. Tilting the glass a bit, a transition of the hue towards garnet red can be seen at the edges of this barrel-aged wine. If one gives it some air by swirling, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which is evident in church windows at the edge of the glass. The first nose of the Icon Edition Reserva Especial presents notes of plum mousse, wild berry confit and blueberries. The fruity aspects of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel aging such as even more fruity-balsamic nuances.

On the palate, the Icon Edition Reserva Especial from Bodegas Faustino opens wonderfully dry, grippy and aromatic. In the finish, this well storable red wine from the wine-growing region of La Rioja finally inspires with beautiful length. Hints of rum pot and blackberry show again.

Vinification of the Icon Edition Reserva Especial from Bodegas Faustino

The powerful Icon Edition Reserva Especial from Spain is a blend made from Graciano and Tempranillo grape varieties. Without question, the Icon Edition Reserva Especial is also defined by more than just the Rioja DOCa soil. This Spaniard can be described as an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, and it is extraordinarily impressive. The maturation of the grapes for this wine made from Graciano and Tempranillo is influenced to a considerable extent by the climate of the growing region. In La Rioja, the grapes thrive in a warm climate, which is reflected, among other things, in particularly well ripened grapes and a rather high must weight. The grapes for this red wine from Spain are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimal ripeness. After the hand harvest, the grapes quickly reach the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in large wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Icon Edition Reserva Especial is aged for several months in French oak barrels. The aging in wooden barrels is followed by a long bottle aging, which makes this red wine even more complex.

Food recommendation for the Icon Edition Reserva Especial from Bodegas Faustino

Drink this red wine from Spain ideally tempered at 15 - 18°C as a companion to goose breast with ginger-red cabbage and marjoram, duck breast with sugar snap peas or braised chicken in red wine.
