This Reserva is a careful selection of perfectly ripe Tempranillo grapes, from superb vineyards in Rioja Alta, some Graciano adds more finesse and polish while a little Mazuelo brings depth and colour. Two years in French and American oak casks has softened this lovely wine leaving it fragrantly aromatic and spicy with underlying rich fruit and a savoury palate with balance and elegance on the long and complex finish.

Intense body of cherry colour with beautiful purple highlights. Attractive aroma of forest fruits, violets and liquorice with hints of Atlantic forest, clove and cigar leaves.

The 2014 harvest yield exceeded the previous two vintages. Preventative measures in the vineyard, such as thinning clusters and leaves, allowed us to maintain the high quality of grapes.

Before starting the alcoholic fermentation, the bunches were cooled down and kept at a low temperature for some hours. The fermentation took place in French oak vats. After its second fermentation, the wine was then aged in both American and Frech oak casks ro two years, followed by another two years in bottle prior to release into market.

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (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 Asúa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine.

C.V.N.E. is based in Haro's traditional neighbourhood of the train 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, Viña Real and Contino the winemakers have control over quality from vineyard to bottle.
