75cl * 13.5% ABV * Rioja, Spain
In the 1920s, CVNE became known for its range of pioneering Viña Real wines that struck a careful balance between tradition and modernity, combining New World fruit intensity with Old World style. For this reason, its Crianza remains one of Rioja's bestsellers. Lashings of ripe autumnal fruit sit underneath the toast and spice of American oak. An easy-drinking, mid-week red for tomato meatballs.
