Cune Rioja Viña Real Gran Reserva 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

From half bottle - Classic aromatics of tobacco, earth and sweet tea great the nose and gains a dried strawberry edge with smoky top notes over time. On the palate this is soft and elegant with acidity peeking out a bit though the fresh strawberry fruits, while shallow, are certainly there on the mid-palate. Over-all a touch low intensity though with good persistence on the finish which keep the strawberry vibe alive. I would love to see more intensity and complexity but from a half bottle a very fine showing. 87pts
