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.

Better than the 2015

I have purchased around 40 bottles of the 2015 vintage (50 cl) and am thoroughly enjoying them. My last order was short on 3 bottles so Vinissimus substituted 3 bottles of this for me to try. I am really glad they did, it is more expensive but has a greater depth of flavour and I will most definitely be buying more!

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. ...
