The 2014 Cune Reserva has adapted its profile to more modern parameters, with aging in barrique for 18 months. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. It has an approachable profile, gentle and quite fruit-driven, with limited impact from the élevage. In the palate, the wine shows good balance and fine tannins.
