'Fastaia' is the name of a river that runs through the vineyards. Intense ruby red with purple highlights. On the nose, it present vegetal and fruit notes along with sweet, spiced notes of coriander and turmeric. The taste is very concentrated on the palate, warm and complex with dense tannins. The finish is long with persistent aromas and very well balanced. It will accompany well hearty dishes such as roasted lamb, chicken, wild boar or veal stew as well as semi-aged cheeses.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Fastaia is a rich, powerful wine loaded with the essence of mocha, spices, grilled herbs and dark fruit. The sumptuousness of the fruit carries through to the long, refined finish where a burst of blackberries, spices and new leather add the final layers of complexity. Readers who want to explore Ceuso's wines without spending a fortune should start here. This is a fabulous wine for the money. The 2007 Fastaia is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot 10% Petit Verdot fermented in steel and subsequently aged in cement for 18 months. Anticipated maturity: 2012- 2022.

From top to bottom this is an impressive set of new releases from Ceuso.
