Wine information: CVNE Imperial Reserva Rioja is one of the big brands of Spain. It is a true classic in Rioja and was first produced in the twenties. Its name comes after a special bottling for the English market, in a measure called 'Pinta Imperial' or 'Imperial Pint' (an Imperial pint, half a litre approximately). From 1928 these wines could be found at the top restaurants and shops all over Spain. It has always been characterised for its very high and constant quality, in every vintage. The Imperial range includes a 'Reserva' and a 'Gran Reserva' and is only produced in exceptional vintages. For the CVNE Imperial Reserva a selection of the best grapes from CVNE ( CUNE) Rioja Alta vineyards around the village of Villalba were hand harvested. The fermentation took place in a combination of oak vats and stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The wine is then aged in both American and French new oak casks for two years before being bottled followed by another two years in bottle prior to its release to the market. Stylish, bright ruby red and very intense in colour. Highly aromatic on the nose with hints of red and black autumn fruit aromas along with some toasted and spicy notes of sweet Bourbon character. Full and meaty in the palate with great depth and a fine, long, velvety and complex finish. Tempranillo 85%, Graciano 10% and Mazuelo 5%.
