CVNE, Tempranillo "Cune Reserva" Rioja, Spain 2016
85% Tempranillo, with 15% Garnacha Tinta, Graciano, and Mazuelo.
The grapes for the production of Cune Reserva come from the company’s Caballeros, Santo Tomás and Sarnamoros estates, all located in Rioja Alta in the towns of Rodezno, Villalba and Haro.
After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine undergoes heat maceration and remains in the vat for approximately 18 months. Then, after malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels (partly new) and American barrels. The process continues for 24 months, during which the wine evolves, adopting the characteristic notes of the two types of wood. Following natural clarification, the second phase of aging and balancing takes place. The wine remains in the bottle in cellar for a minimum of 12 months before being released on the market.
