Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red cherry colour, on nose an explosion of ripe berry fruits and hints of liquorice and balsamic notes with an elegant touch of oak. We recommend to start consuming this wine from 2005 to 2020.

Blend: Tempranillo 85%, Mazuelo & garnacha 5%, Graciano 10%

About Cune:

Cvné, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.

In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.

The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.
