CVNE Imperial Reserva Rioja is one of the big Rioja brands of Spain. It is a true classic in Rioja and was first produced in the 1920s. Its name comes after a special bottling for the English market, which was bottled 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 this Reserva and a Gran Reserva and they are only produced in exceptional vintages.
