Brief Description

Tasting Notes

Cune Rioja Crianza is a deep burgundy colour and very modern in style. Its bright, fresh and rich in ripe red fruits. Its 12 months in oak is just enough to give it a little weight whilst still retaining the fruity lightness through to the finish.

About

This wine has been produced every year since the winery was founded over 140 years ago.

The vineyards for Cune Crianza are located in Rioja Alta, near the CVNE winery, which means that the grapes arrive intact at the winery to be processed in optimal conditions. Approximately half of the grapes are from our own vineyards in Haro and nearby towns, while the rest are bought from grape growers in the area.

The grapes are fermented in a 20,000-kilo stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature between 25 and 27ºC to preserve the fruit that characterises this wine. Remontage is performed every day and delestage twice during maceration. After 12 days in a vat, the grapes are pressed, and malolactic fermentation takes place in a tank. Subsequently, the wine is aged in American oak barrels for one year, during which it acquires its characteristic aromatic balance, fine character and overall expression.

Ideal with...

Just about anything, from simple meat and two veg to rich spicy tomato and fish dishes. Pairs well with beef, lamb, veal and poultry.
