A definitive Reserva from a top house, this is deliciously bright and fresh but with a fine tannin structure and elegant. Perfect food red, this staple of the cellar or cupboard will suit an expensive dinner...or a classy Thursday barbeque. Classic European dining for a great price.

Grape

85% Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo

Its Origins

The Cune label now occupies the mid-range of the Cvne hierarchy, but the name is based in the family's orginal hometown of Haro, Rioja Alta. It was there that Cvne were established in 1879 by the Real de Asúa brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo, and over the decades they became and remained one of Rioja's most reliable sources of high quality wine. Soon comprising three bodegas (Asua de Real, Cune and Contino) they maintained the distinctiveness of each, with the Cune label's stylistic integrity built around a balance of old and new style Rioja: clean, juicy fruit with oak influence and ageworthy acid and tannin structure.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds

"The 2014 Cune Reserva has adapted its profile to more modern parameters, with aging in barrique for 18 months. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. It has an approachable profile, gentle and quite fruit-driven, with limited impact from the élevage. In the palate, the wine shows good balance and fine tannins. 500,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017."
