CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva 2016
98 Points - James Suckling
Notes from the Winemaker
Intense cherry red layer. On the nose it is interesting for its complexity, highlighting the licorice, the fruits of the forest and the aromas of cloves, roasted coffee, cigar leaf, chocolate, caramel and certain balsamic notes, which naturally come from the stay in the barrel. The palate is marked by a velvety tannin that gives it the elegance of this wine as well as having a very attractive aftertaste. In the glass it will evolve, expanding its aromatic variety.
It can be paired alone or accompanied by red meats, game, fatty fish, and cured cheeses.
Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo
