The Cune winery is situated in Rioja where the oldest wineries of Rioja are established in the sub-region of Rioja Alta. In 1879, two brothers set up C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, to produce fine Spanish wines. The Cuné winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.

The Crianza is made of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha and Mazuelo. Hand harvested, de-stemmed, and short macerated, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 26 and 28ºC to retain varietal aromas. Following alcoholic fermentation the wine was transferred to American oak casks where it remained for at least 12 months, with regular rackings to develop its finesse.

Polished and transparent with blueberries and hints of mushrooms and dried flowers. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and focused. One for now or later. Always excellent.

This lively red combines depth with energy. Bright berry and cherry flavors mingle with notes of fresh herb, cocoa and toast, supported by light tannins and crisp acidity. Focused and harmonious. Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2025. 375,000 cases made, 15,000 cases imported.

Glistening ruby-red. Aromas of fresh red berries, cherry and vanilla reveal subtle spice and herb nuances. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering lively red currant and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. In an appealingly approachable style, delivering very good finishing energy, smooth tannin's and lingering red fruit notes. Drinking window: 2021 - 2026
