Details for Cune Crianza 2017
Bottle size and vintage
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.

Very nice and smooth wine. Not too heavy and good to drink in combination with beef or pork
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. ...
