Bodega Faustino was built in 1968 but wine production under the Faustino name began long before that when, in 1861, Eleutorio Martinez Arzok purchased a vineyard in Oyon, Spain.  The vineyard stayed in the family and bottling begin in 1930 by Faustino Martinez Perez de Albeniz. Bodega Faustino sits on a little over 1,500 acres across the municipalities of Laguardia, Logrono, Mendavia, and Oyon in Northeastern Spain.  By combining local climate and conditions with the tradition and experience of winemakers, Faustino wines are recognized and celebrated all over the world. Stainless steel tanks and state-of-the-art technologies are combined with traditional processes to create the unique Faustino wines that, after being aged in either American or French Oak, continue to be celebrated.

In standard Faustino fashion, this Faustino VII has almost no nose. What little nose is present, is medium bodied and bland. The initial taste is also medium, but medium-light spice and the only flavor is the fruit, but extremely low in sugar content. The finish is fast and smooth, over in about 1.2 seconds. This is a good wine to servie with authentic Latin American cuisine (which is also bland).

VII Rioja 2006 - Wine Enthusiast/ For regular, everyday Rioja this should not fail. It has nice cherry and plum aromas with a hint of rubber and tobacco. Licorice, plum, raspberry and brown sugar flavors work the balanced, controlled palate, while the finish is natural.

Value Brands of the Year: Top 4 Spanish Value Brands/ From one of the region’s most consistent and well-known wineries. The light, pleasantly funky ’06 Rioja Faustino VII makes a subtle match to a gamey Berkshire pork chop.
