Magnum, 1.5 litre bottle. CVNE Imperial Rioja Reserva has a deep garnet in colour with glints of blue at the rim. On the nose, aromas of wild berries and liquorice merge beautifully with notes of toffee and tobacco. The palate reveals elegance, depth and fine, velvety tannins. The finish is long and complex.

The grapes come from the best and oldest CVNE vineyards around Villalba, Briones & Torremontalbo, which are over 40 years old. Rigorous work in the vineyard followed by hand harvesting into 20kg boxes with an intensive manual selection in the field ensures the collection of great quality grapes.

The 2015 harvest is noted as one of the best in recent years. The weather conditions were optimal during the vine cycle and there was excellent quality shown across the vineyards.

Before starting the alcoholic fermentation, the grape bunches were cooled down and kept at a low temperature for some hours. The fermentation took place in French oak vats. After its second fermentation, the wine was then aged in both American and French oak casks for two years, followed by another two years in bottle prior to release.
