For when you need a red wine but aren't sure what they'll enjoy. We don't know of anyone who wouldn't appreciate CVNE's Imperial Rioja Reserva, and the 2016 vintage is exceptionally delicious right now.
From: Rioja, Spain
Cvne, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.
In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.
The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century, and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.
Tasting Notes: Deep cherry red in color. The nose is attractive and complex, combining the fruit-driven notes from the blend of varieties with those from the aging in French and American oak barrels. The palate is well rounded, with the clear presence of supple, silky tannins, and concludes with a long and very pleasing finish.
We have here a wine which will evolve and develop well in the bottle
over the years to come.
Pairing: In terms of food matching, our suggestions include oily fish, game, red meats and cured cheeses.
