Fausto Tannat 2019


Out of stock

A delicious, complex red which packs a real punch, this example of an under-appreciated, lesser known French grape variety. 

As the name suggests, Tannat wines are to a greater or lesser extent tannic (and often used in blends), deep in colour, and best enjoyed with robust, well flavoured dishes. 

Nb. please note that this wine is now available exclusively from our colleagues at Novel Wines in Bath. View here: Buy Pizzato Fausto Tannat Brazilian Red Wine Online (novelwines.co.uk)

Alternatives on the Go Brazil portfolio include our Don Guerino El Gaucho Tannat, a more fruit forward style or, if you are looking for a bolder/heavier wine, we would recommend Fausto’s ‘big brother’, the Pizzato Nervi Reserva Tannat – a similar wine but it spends longer in barrel and is more powerful and concentrated, and derived from older vines.



ABV: 13%

APPEARANCE:  Very deep purple-black colour

AROMAS: Attractive perfumed dark fruits with some oaky and leathery notes

TASTE:  Richly concentrated black fruits overlaying spice and coffee flavours. Medium to heavy bodied but supple nonetheless, with pleasantly well rounded tannins

FOOD PAIRING: Well seasoned red meat dishes, especially beef, lamb or pork, maybe also curries, BBQ’d and spicy foods

OVERALL: With its weight and complexity, this Fausto will appeal both to Tannat aficionados and maybe also those who appreciate a Shiraz or Pinotage style of red

If you like this, try our Reserva Tannat – the ‘older brother’ of Fausto, barrel-aged for longer and with an even greater depth of flavour
