The grapes were hand picked from selected vineyards and, following destalking,
they were fermented at controlled temperatures between 28oC and 30oC.
Following a full malolactic fermentation to balance the acidity, and to round and
soften the wine, it was matured for eighteen months in a mixture of French and
American oak barrels, with rackings every six months. After bottling, the wine was
cellared twenty four months before being released.
VINTAGE / HARVEST DESCRIPTION
The 2012 harvest has been poor in the DOCa Rioja due to the drought that has
characterized this vintage . The yield in the vineyard has been less especially in
rainfed areas and has affected all varieties , especially the white but this lack of
rain has meant that the grapes reach the winery in excellent health status getting
very Mediterranean wines , aromatic and fruity . In CVNE we started on
September 20 and ended on October 23 , making a slow and selective harvest .
Intense ruby red, bright and deep in colour. Rich, deep aromas of bramble, red
autumn fruit with a hint of balsamic and warm spices from fine oak. The palate is
fine, complex and long, with balanced tannins and an excellent bright finish.
