2008-Cune Imperial Reserva
“Koo-nay Imperi-ull Gron Ray-zer-vuh Ree-oh-Huh”
A dependable parade horse red at work horse pricing, the rare “Gran Reserva” distinction is issued only for exceptionally fine vintages and the vineyards must meet the highest quality standards over decades or even centuries. Those prerequisites plus several years of barrel and bottle aging before release guarantee superior opulence and smoothness when paired with classic Mediterranean cuisines. 1.5 hours of decanting necessary.
