Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana was established in 1879 in Haro, Rioja. CVNE is still managed by the descedents of the brothers responsible for it’s establishment. Known for producing some of the most traditional wines in Rioja, CVNE is also a huge proponent for innovation in the region. The Imperial range from CVNE are some of the finest wines made in Rioja.
A classic Gran Reserva Rioja with exceptional purity of fruit. Fantastic balance and elegance from its five year maturation period. Intense dark cherry colour. Attractive aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and raspberries, blended together with hints of spice and vanilla. Complex and elegant on the palate with fine tannins and a good length. This is a Rioja to pair up with a steak cooked with fresh thyme.
