Rich, structured and complex Rioja with smooth tannins and elegant ripe fruit and a fine dusting of spicy oak.

Deep ruby red. Very intense and complex nose, stand out the notes developed during his ageing in barrels (coffee, spices, roasted) aromas of candied fruits and nuts. The palate is very structured, full bodied, sweet tannins and appreciate well integrated into the whole wine. This is an excellent wine with character and personality, complex nose, long in mouth, persistent aftertaste and a high potential for bottle aging. An elegant wine which highlights the hallmarks of its origin (Rioja Alavesa).

Made with high quality grapes harvested by hand from our better plots in Rioja Alavesa. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures with a frequent dropping of the juice over the skins in order to maximise extraction. Malolactic Fermentation is carried out in French and American oak barrels, and then, the wine is manually racked to stabilise and get rid of deposits. After the cask ageing, the wine is clarified with white of egg to achieve the silkiness and shiny final colour. Once in bottle, the wine starts attaining its typical elegance.

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.
