Red Wine Cune Reserva 2016
Availability: In stock
A classic among classics, Cune Reserva from La Rioja is crafted by one the oldest and most prestigious wineries of the region: the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, better known as CVNE or Cune, established in 1879 in the town of Haro, La Rioja's wine capital.
After a meticulous selection process, the grapes were destemmed and cold-soaked for 10 days in stainless steel tanks.
After finishing alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, this Spanish red wine was put into French and American oak barrels and aged for 18 months.
Gently clarified, Cune Reserva 2016 was then bottled and aged for a minimum of 12 months before its commercial release.
Decant this Reserva from La Rioja 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Cune Reserva has a nice claret colour with some mahoganny tinges.
This blend of Tempranillo, Mazuela, Grenache and Graciano has a textbook Rioja nose. Cranberries and raspberries, with aromas of vanilla, toffee and coco, coming from the aging in wood.
Smooth and well balanced, this wine from Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) has a solid structure, silky tannins and a crisp acidity. Long finish, with some balsamic remembrances, and hints of tobacco leaves and wet undergrowth.
