Faustino 'V' Reserva 2005
The origins of Faustino, one of the great names in Spanish winemaking and the Rioja's largest producer of estate-bottled Reserva and Gran Reserva wines, date back to the mid-1800s. That's when founder Eleuterio Martinez Arzok took to the road, selling wines from a barrel from the back of a horse-drawn cart. Eleuterio's entrepreneurial spirit lives on in his descendants to this day. In addition to the Faustino winery and extensive vineyards in the Rioja, the firm has expanded to include the magnificent Campillo estate, also in the Rioja, as well as properties in Navarra and La Mancha.
