Label for Imperial Reserva Rioja 2005, Spain

Product Details

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red resulting from the long maceration.

Deep berry nose, blackberries, and liquorice predominating the powerful structure.

There are fine hints of toasty oak with fine balsamic nuances.

The palate is full, generous and rich with hints of fine spices.

The tannins are mature and the wine has developed an exceptional elegance from its time in barrel.

The finish is long, beautifully structured and classic Rioja Alta.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Background

History

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region.

They are wines designed to match wine food and are a perfect match to roast lamb.
