C.V.N.E. Vina Real Gran Reserva Rioja 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Richly fruited on the nose with notes of baked black cherries framed by hints of mint, dill and fennel, along with strong notes of tobacco and sweet medicinal spices. Downright opulent on entry, this is rich and powerful in the mouth with bright acids and polished tannins in perfect harmony. The core of red fruit shows excellent energy and cut, underlain as it is with mineral and umami notes. There’s a lovely hint of game on the finish here, along with an incipient cast of autumnal spice. Deep, precise and complete, this is a winner. 94 points
