Description:
Remarkable colour intensity, shiny appearance. Tremendous bouquet in terms of variety of aromas and of power. Tempranillo aromas find a balance with those of ageing, mostly toasty and balsamic aromas. Round and structured on the palate.

Softened by 2 years in barrel, this lovely wine is aromatic and spicy delivering rich fruit on the savoury palate with an elegant and complex finish.

A selection of the best grapes from our Rioja Alta vineyards around the village of Villalba (hand harvested). Prior to commencing the alcoholic fermentation, the whole bunches of grapes are cooled down to a low temperature in order to extract the maximum expression of the Tempranillo fruit. Once the fermentation has been completed in a combination of oak vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, the wine is aged in a mixture of new American and French casks for two years before bottling and then a further two years in bottle prior to its release to the market.

Producer Information

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine.
C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days.
By 1900, the winery had an extraordinary ageing capacity of 80,000 bottles, which was most unusual at the time, as most wineries sold their wines as soon as possible.
C.V.N.E. is still controlled by the direct descendants of the founding family. Now in its fifth generation, the company has been quoted on the Madrid stock exchange since 1997.
C.V.N.E. farms half of its grape crush. The remainder is purchased from long term growers. With three wineries in the region; Cune, Via Real and Contino the winemakers have control over quality from vineyard to bottle.
