Characteristics of Cune Imperial Gran Reserva

Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is a red wine made in the La Rioja by C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España), a historic winery founded in the late nineteenth century.

Cune Imperial Grand Reserva is considered by some as one of the great wines of Spain. Its 2014 vintage was selected by the prestigious magazine the WineSpectator as the best wine in the world.

It is a blend made from Tempranillo as the main variety with a small percentage of Mazuelo and Graciano. The grapes come from old vines planted 45 years ago in the town of Villalba. The harvest is done manually, a first selection of grapes is carried out, and they are transferred to the winery in small boxes that help keep the grapes in perfect condition.

Once in the winery, the grapes are cooled and passed to a sorting table where only the best bunches are selected. The grapes are macerated cold before undergoing a controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at the end of another long post-fermentation, maceration is performed.

Cune Imperial Gran Reserva undergoes a 22-month aging in barrels of French and American oak, during that time, rackings are applied every 4 months.

After the aging, it is clarified and bottled and is aged in the bottle in the cellar before hitting the market.

Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is a classic Rioja wine. Fine, elegant, balanced and rounded, a great job.

Although it can be consumed now, it has a large storage capacity.

Alcohol: 13.5%

We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Cune Imperial Gran Reserva

Sight A pretty garnet colour. Nose The nose is a complex, full of nuances. There are varietal aromas. Ripe forest fruits and liquorice with notes of the barrel: cloves, fruit, leaves and snuff. Taste Balanced, silky, soft, elegant. Very greedy with hints of liquorice in the aftertaste.
Sight Ruby colour with maroon edge. Clean and bright wine of medium robe and a slightly coloured uniform-falling tear. Nose Complex, clean and intense. Ripe red fruit, fine toasted notes, spices, nails, coffee, liquorice, vanilla, balsamic touches, eucalyptus, rosemary, tobacco, and wet mountain aromas. Taste Good attack, silky and elegant mid-palate, with a great and well-defined acidity that provides a lot of freshness, many fruit and elegant toasted nuances that are repeated at retro-olfaction. Very long and persistent finish. Great, well-balanced red wine without edges.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Nice maroon colour with tile red edges, characteristic of this kind of wines. Bright wine with very elegant tears. Nose Intense, deep and concentrated aromas, with notes that improve after aeration. Initially, its intense and elegant toasted, smoked and balsamic hints are released. When it opens up, the intense notes of ripe black fruit are displayed, mixed with subtle, creamy spices which reach a perfect balance. Slightly herbal background. Taste Wide, bulky and well-bodied wine, which coats the mouth entirely with its aromas. It has a long, very expressive, velvety mid palate, with a great balance. Excellent acidity and round tannins. Long and very persistent finish.
