Characteristics of Cune Crianza

Cune Crianza is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Cune, the starting winery of the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (80%), Mazuela (10%) and Grenache (10%).

The grapes used for Cune Crianza originate from vines owned by the winery and also other estates found in the La Rioja Alta of high quality.

After the normal harvest processes, the grapes are transported to the winery, where they are fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

The wine is produced following traditional methods. The must for Cune Crianza is malolactically fermented in tanks.

The last phase before being bottled, Cune Crianza is aged for one year to allow the wine to refine and express itself.

Serve at 17.0ºC

Tasting notes Cune Crianza

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
Sight Cherry red with purple tones. Nose Notes red berries and balsamic reminiscences from the barrel. Taste Elegant and very lively, this is a spicy wine with excellent acidity.
Sight Intense cherry with violet. Bright and expressive. Nose Medium-high, with aromas of red fruit on balsamic and toasted notes. Taste Elegant and fruity, with good acidity and round tannins. Silky and pleasant step. Medium finish.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
