To produce the Rioja Gran Reserva Cune the colour and structure is obtained after alcoholic fermentation maceration. The malolactic fermentation makes the wine suitable for ageing in American and French oaks. Finally the wine was left to age in centenary cellars where it remained for a minimum of 36 months under optimum temperature and humidity conditions until being released to the market.
Made from hand selected grapes from vineyards in Rioja Alta.
Cune: the brand responsible for Rioja’s fame. Since 1879. The first wine produced by CVNE took the name of the company’s initials. However, a simple and fortunate spelling error, confusing the V with a U, led to the creation of the iconic Cune brand, now the leading wine on the national market. The winery expanded its facilities in 2019, coinciding with its 140th anniversary and marking its continued commitment to producing the finest quality white, rosé and gran reserva wines. Cune wines have been produced every year since the company’s inception, with the ongoing aim of producing a classic Rioja Alta wine: fine, with a long finish. Vinification takes place in ‘El Pilar’, the first winemaking facility in Spain to use gravity-led processes to transport must in 1989. CVNE was a pioneer in this concept, which has now been adopted by numerous wineries.
