Cune Gran Reserva

The newest (to date) special reserva wine made by CVNE is the Cune Gran Reserva. As well as our Crianzas and Reservas, we wanted to produce a wine for laying down, made exclusively with grapes from our vineyards in villages near Haro: Torrentalvo, with Briones and Villalba, depending on the vintage. In the past, we did not have the vines to make this wine.

The specially selected grapes for Cune Gran Reserva come from our own vineyards in Torrentalbo. The vines are 45 years old on average, head-trained and south and east facing, while the soils are clayey with pebbles.

Manual harvesting in 20 kg boxes. At the winery, the boxes are kept in a cold store for 24 hours to prevent oxidation, stabilise the colour and preserve the aromas of the fruit.  Alcoholic fermentation is carried out using our own yeasts in small stainless steel and concrete tanks, alternating different types of remontage. After fermentation, the wine is macerated for several days with the skins, during which regular tasting takes place to determine the ideal moment for drawing it off.

Malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete tanks and, after 24 months of ageing in American and French oak barrels, the wine is clarified and bottled. It is then kept for at least 36 months in our cellars under strictly controlled temperature and humidity conditions.

“The first wine produced by the company took its name from the initials CVNE. A fortuitous misspelling between the U and the V created the iconic Cune brand”
