CVNE (375ml) 2007 Cune Imperial Reserva

Red, Old World, Tempranillo based wine from Rioja, Spain

Past wine – out of stock



CVNE was established in 1879 in Haro the capital of the Rioja wine region. The fifth generation of descendants of the founders are still managing the company. The family owns 590 acres of vineyards but they also buy grapes from local growers.

A selection of the best grapes from their Rioja Alta vineyards around the village of Villalba were hand harvested into small 30 kg boxes. Prior to starting the alcoholic fermentation, the whole bunches of grapes were cooled down and kept at a low temperature for some hours in order to better control the fermentation without using any additives and to achieve the optimum extraction. The fermentation took place in a combination of oak vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine was then aged in both American and French new oak casks for two years before being bottled followed by another two years in bottle prior to its release to the market

Stylish, bright ruby red and very intense in colour. Highly aromatic on the nose with hints of red and black autumn fruit aromas along with some toasted and spicy notes of sweet Bourbon character. Full and meaty in the palate with great depth and a fine, long, velvety and complex finish.
