Cune Rioja Reserva 2012
Bright cherry color with some violet nuances. In the nose, red berries aromas remain over the oaky and balsamic notes from its ageing in wood. It shows an elegance in the mouth, yet very lively, with some spice back notes and a very balanced acidity.
|Varietal(s)||Tempranillo Garnacha Graciano|
World Wine – If you love the pleasures of traditional Rioja, you may be as charmed by this wine as I am. It's not flashy or insistent. In fact, it's sort of homely in its simplicity, more about delicacy and finesse than complexity. This starts out on tight red berry scents, builds tension with cool acidity, then adds depth with gentle sweetness, so the wine feels both firm and lush. Kudos to CVNE for one of the most compellingly drinkable 2012s you can find.
Wine Spectator – This sleek red offers cherry, licorice, mineral and smoke flavors that mingle harmoniously over light, firm tannins, driven by lively acidity through the savory finish. Discreet, but shows depth and intensity. Drink now through 2025.
