Faustino Rivero U Crianza 16
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
The Rivero family has an extraordinary bond with the Rioja region going back to 1899 when they began making wine in the town of Arnedo. Bodegas Faustino Rivero Ulecia is the family's original winery, part of Grupo Marqués del Atrio, one of the principal producers of DOCa Rioja.
In the 1980s, the fourth generation of the family, Agapito and Jesús Rivero, took over management and moved the original winery from the center of Arnedo into the current Faustino Rivero Ulecia Winery, allowing for a seamless blend of new technology and honored tradition.
"Rich, succulent plums, myrtle and vanilla underpinned by a bright acidity; gentle and creamy with a lifted fresh finish. Drink now-2024"

"Lovely purity of fruit to this Rioja, which shows fresh raspberries, eucalyptus, vanilla and baking spices. Round, medium-to full-bodied palate with centralized tannins that carry dark cherries on the medium finish. Drink now."
