Magnum, 1.5 litre bottle. CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva has a deep cherry red colour. An intensely aromatic nose, with a perfect balance of balsamic notes and sweet spices that prevails from the barrel ageing process. Theres an abundance of forest fruits, berries and liquorice that bring thoughts of the Mediterranean. The palate is velvety and dense marked by soft, fine tannins. The long and fruity finish, reveals the elegance of a classic rioja.

The 2012 growing season lasted 172 days and overall it was marked by drought. However, rain falling at the end of September had a great effect, leading to a full and complete ripening process with the grapes therefore achieving better balance.

The hand selected grapes, once in the winery were held in a refrigerated chamber for 24 hours. They were then subject to second manual selection on a selection table. To ensure the gentlest handling, the grapes were fed by gravity to French oak vats for the alcoholic fermentation. Once completed, the wine was then aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months, followed by 36 months bottle ageing in the century-old cellars until final release.
