You will like to know that…

Imperial Gran Reserva 2011 is a mythical red wine from the century-old and famous Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España and is protected by the D.O. Rioja.

It is one of the great red wines of Spain, which you should not fail to taste, whose name wonderfully reflects the great nobility, harmony of this vintage, very representative of classicism Rioja. Like its predecessors, the hints of ripe fruit blend perfectly with the spicy nuances typical of oak ageing. The Peñín Guide has given it a score of 92/100.

We suggest you enjoy this exceptional wine with white fish in complex sauces and red meat.

Your rating for Imperial Gran Reserva 2011:Rate Imperial Gran Reserva 2011:

4 /5

- Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is an intense ruby red colour.
- The nose is rich and enticing with black and red berry fruit and licorice notes.
- The palate is generously fruity with toasty oak, supple tannins with savoury balsamic nuances and a long finish.
- This wine is produced from grapes harvested in vineyards over 20 years old in the area around Villalba and Haro in Rioja Alta, bush pruned, with low yields, and are picked by hand.
- Only the healthiest and ripest grapes are selected, and following destalking the grapes are cold macerated prior to a cool fermentation.
- Following a long maceration to achieve optimum colour and structure the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation refining it, yet leaving it with the necessary acidity to complete its maturation in French and American oak as well as bottle ageing prior to release.

4 /5

The Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is made of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo and raised in new French and American oak barrels for 24 months. With its intense deep red color it shows in the nose aromas of toast, spices, espresso, blackberry and plum. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth with a fine texture and ripe flavors. An absolute Top Rioja where only 22. bottles 000 are made of.

Guía Peñín
Imperial 2000

3/5

Classic red cherry color of a 2009. Aromas of coffee, toffee. Strong flavour which reminds me of strawberry candy.
We paired the Imperial Gran Reserva with a starter.
We drank it at a meeting with friends.
They had it in a wine bar.
A wine for special occasions.

The red and violet edges were visible for me. Raspberry flavour. Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.
We had it with a birthday cake.
I drank it with my ex.
