Review

The Cune Crianza is an iconic wine, and one of those which by themselves go a long way to explaining the history of Rioja. It encompasses all the fine qualities of reds from the Rioja Alta and a good deal of traditional wine-making methods.

The wine is aged in American oak until it acquires the balance and delicateness that characterise it. The aromas of red berries, eucalyptus and pepper intermingle with hints of tobacco leaf, offering a recognisable nose year after year. On the palate it's fresh and complex at the same time, pure harmony.

Ok.

An average wine. For the price it's ok, nothing special.

Classic Rioja

A very nice, classic Rioja. Enjoyable with many different foods or by itself. Stands out very good with higher prized red wines.

Good wine

A Rioja but with only a light "Rioja" taste. More what i would call a broad international flavour.

Ein guter Wein aus der Rioja!

Der Cune Crianza ist ein gediegener Wein. Erstmalig habe ich ihn in Spanien getrunken. Er ist einfach zu trinken, bei einem Essen oder ein Glas auf der Terrasse, er schmeckt einfach!

Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España - CVNE

Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España - CVNE

The Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, CVNE —or 'Cune', as it's known locally in Haro— was founded in 1879 and was one of the first wineries in La Rioja to bottle wine. What started out as the project of two brothers (Raimundo and Eusebio Real de Asúa) continues today in the hands of the same family (now the fifth generation) and comprises four wineries: CVNE, Imperial (an independent winery within the original CVNE winery), Viña Real and Viñedos del Contino. ...
