CUNE - Imperial Rioja Reserva
SPAIN - Rioja
Grapes: Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Granciano.
Fermented in oak vats and steel tank, 2 years in French and American oak. Very dark crimson and still so youthful-looking. Fragrant with dark fruit and toasty oak and a strong vanilla character and a slight minty note. Dense, chewy tannins but all wrapped up in dark fruit that is more like blackcurrant and blackberry than the anticipated redder fruit of Rioja.
