The grapes are harvested manually from our vineyards in the Rioja Alta. Their alcoholic fermentation takes place over 10 days at a controlled temperature. Subsequently, after the malolactic fermentation, it begins its stage in French and American oak barrels. This will last at least two years during which the wine will age adopting the characteristic notes of the two types of wood. After a natural clarification takes place the second phase of aging, ie its permanence in bottle for a year in our draft. CUNE RESERVA Rioja Red 2004 85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Bordelesa C/ 6 Bllas. 75cl., The first wine produced in the Haro winery was bottled under the Cune brand.

Wine Advocate – 91 points Wine Spectator – 91 points Guía Peñin HARVEST DATA Vintage slightly ahead of previous years due to a very hot summer with little rainfall. However, the rains that fell in mid-September not only contributed to solving the water stress problems of some vineyards and to recovering production expectations, but they were also decisive for the final quality of the harvest, as they allowed alcoholic maturity and phenolic maturity to be balanced, resulting in a harvest of very good quality. TASTING NOTES Attractive and intense garnet colour with purple reminiscences. Interesting nose, which like its color show us a modern and youthful reserve. We can find fruits of the forest, plum, the characteristic liquorice, and aromas from barrel aging as toffes, vanillas, chocolates. In the mouth we find a soft entry wine, very sweet, his step is strong although the tannin we find is very polished. The retronasal leaves us a wine with its personality very marked by the liquorice of the tempranillo and by a meatiness that makes it a wine of long drink.
