Cune Crianza 2019
A surprisingly aromatic nose with red fruits and liquorice, nicely balanced with the American oak flavours of vanilla, cocoa and caramel.
The grapes come from different locations with a diversity of soils, orientations, pruning and trellising techniques and vine age. Cune Crianza is a blended wine which reflects its own typical style year after year
The harvest began at CVNE on September 12th and ended on October 15th. The vegetative state of the vineyard has been very good in terms of health in Rioja Alta. Due to temperature fluctuations and light rainfall during the months of May and June, the quantity of grapes was reduced, resulting in small, loose and less compact bunches, but increasing the quality considerably. The evolution of the grapes was late compared to last year, but the low yields led to earlier ripening, making the harvest dates the same. The grapes were harvested calmly and gradually, allowing for a good selection of grapes both in the vineyard and in the winery.
Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine was then aged in American oak for 1 year.
