CUNE CRIANZA 2010 (Rioja, Spain)

$37.99 single Bottle, $36.09 by the six-pack or dozen

Hand-picked grapes for Crianza from Cune are traditionally aged a year in older US oak.  Red and some blackfruits, balsalm, chocolate and wild thyme in an open and gentle nose, nicely woody. The palate likewise is spacious and gentle, with a good long slow red/black cherry fruit core, a bit of cola, nut and a hit of scrubby woody and oily herb (like thyme, lavender and rosemary). Savoury, long and low in the mouth, the balsamic old wood and fine acidity add a sourness which caresses and elongates the gentle earthy red cherry fruit. A gentle and amiable ‘old school’ Crianza. This is typical, tasty Rioja red.

 

C.V.N.E (Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana), aka ‘Cune’, La Rioja Alta -

Founded 1879 by the Real de Asua brothers (Raimondo and Eusebio) of Bilbao, C.V.N.E (hereafter, Cune, pronounced coo-nay) has been an integral part of the Rioja region’s ascendance in the fine wine world. Early success came as a negociant house supplying bulk wine to a France devastated by phylloxera and oidium. Committing to a fine wine vision of Rioja, the brothers soon moved away

from bulk wine shipping and began purchasing and planting vineyards around Rioja Alta and employed cellar masters from Bordeaux. The company is still run by a descendant of the Real de Asua brothers, the fifth generation current CEO Victor Urrutia Ybarra. Innovation combined with tradition has seen Cune become a consistently reliable sources for high quality Rioja wine.

 

This wine matches lamb, or cured meats like jamon serrano.
