Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Faustino I Gran Reserva has a classical, oaky profile, with developed aromas but still keeping some fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and polished, but I expected a little more weight and depth. This brand represents around 40% of the total Gran Reserva Rioja sold in the world with 520,000 bottles produced. Drink Date: 2016-2020.
