Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent


The 2020 Real de Asua Carromaza is 100% Tempranillo from the single-vineyard Carromaza plot. It was aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers up expressive scents of plum preserves, blackberry pie, and chocolate-covered cherries, with hints of black olives, tar, espresso, and unsmoked cigars. The full-bodied palate is chock full of earthy/savory flavors with a chewy texture and lively acidity to support the generous fruit, finishing long and minerally. Approximately 1,200 cases were made.

The Imperial winery is a small and unique independent artisanal winery within the original CVNE facility in Haro, where the company was founded. This has been one of Spain’s finest wines since 1920 and is only produced in years of exceptional harvests in Rioja: Imperial.

It takes its name from a special bottling run for the English market in a bottle known as the Imperial Pint (an imperial pint is approximately half a litre).

The winery contains French oak vats of different capacities, and rigorous quality controls govern wine production. The wines are monitored using artisanal techniques adapted specifically for each plot. Barrels are aged inside their Eiffel facility, built by the popular architect’s studio in 1909.
