Cune - 2019 Organic Rioja
There is a new organic red, the debut of which is the 2019 Cune Organic, a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano. That's quite an unusual blend for them, as they tend to use more Tempranillo, and it brings a different combination of freshness and power. The grapes were handpicked and fermented separately by variety with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in used 300-liter oak barrels for six months. This wine is deep ruby red in color with good aromatic intensity showing forest fruits such as blackberries, red currants and wild fruits. On the palate the red fruit characteristic of Tempranillo dominates along with floral notes. Barrel aging gives a lightly spiced touch and a long, balanced finish.
