The first wine of this winery was named after its initials. At the beginning a red ‘clarete’ wine was made as a fine wine in the style of the Bordeaux “Claret” produced by the great chateaux’s of the Medoc. The success of the Cune Crianza motivated the creation of Cune Reserva.

The grapes were hand picked from selected vineyards of Rioja Alta, The alcoholic fermentation takes place at controlled temperature. After the malolactic fermentation starts its aging in French and American oak barres. This lasts 18 months, during this period the wine evolves taking the characteristic features of the two types of wood.
