Description

Cune is one of the oldest and most trusted estates in Rioja. It was established nearly 150 years ago by the Real de Asúa brothers and remains owned by the 5th generation of the same family to this day. One of Cune’s claims to fame is that parts of the winery was designed by Alexandre Eiffel – no less!

This Reserva has been produced using hand-picked grapes only from Cune’s vineyards located in Rioja Alta. It is loaded with red fruits and liquorice with an underlying rich vanilla-spiced character derived from its ageing in French and American oak barrels for 2 years. It is aged for 50% longer than required by wine law, leading to more complexity and softness of fruit. This wine would match perfectly with roast lamb or mushroom dishes.
