The Asua from CVNE is only made in peak years (2004,2005,2010, 2011 and now 2015). Since 1994, CVNE pays tribute to its founders with this beautiful red that has emerged from a selection of the best Tempranillo varieties that grow on a 1.5 ha plot in Rioja Alta and vinified in a microbodega installed at CVNE's headquarters. It is a classic "revised" La Rioja, where the proverbial elegance of the wines of this area is underlined by a clear fruit expression.

The wine comes from the best vineyards of Villalaba and Haro where the ripening of the skin and flesh of the grape is constantly monitored and by tasting regularly the exact date of the harvest is determined. The first selection is collected in small boxes and is then fermented in oak barrels and in which they remain for another 5 weeks after fermentation under strict temperature control. This is the Icon of CVNE-their Top Wine. This wine is intensely ripe with red fruit, spices and mocha / coffee notes and a hint of balsamics from the oak. Very good and balanced in taste with ripe, fine tannins over a rich, meaty structure. Extremely well balanced with a great aftertaste and good acidity. The 2015 vintage is wonderful with an unprecedented drinking window 2034.
