The wine

Elegant and harmonious year after year, a wine that openly and honestly shows its origins, the Rioja Alavesa, with a very rich and seductive nose, and an agile, fresh palate... A classic with personality, a virtual single varietal Tempranillo (95%) at a very fair price and bearing the Cvne group's guarantee.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Suckling

The extremely affordable 2016 Viña Real Gran Reserva Especial recovers the "Especial" mention from the old Reserva Especial vintages from a very good year. It's a classical Rioja Alavesa blend of 95% Tempranillo with 5% Graciano from their own vineyards. It's open and expressive, with notes of berries, fresh blood and iron, orange peel and sweet spices with the oak still present and in need of some more time in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied and feels lean and serious, with abundant chalky tannins. This should be a classical vintage of this wine in the making. It matured in barrel for two years and no less than three in bottle. 30,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019.

Today, looking to over a 100 years of Cvne experience, the new Viña Real winery offers modern-style wines that are well prepared for a...
