Fruit for Imperial Reserva and Imperial Gran Reserva are obtained entirely from CVNE vineyards at Vilalba, in the Rioja Alta region. At almost 600 meters these are amongst the highest vineyards in Rioja. The Microclimate delivers high definition fruit and clear structure, perhaps the most claret-like in style found here. The Reserva benefits from hand-picking and table selection of bunches prior to fermentation, clear quality indicators. The wine is made from 95% Tempranillo and is barrel-matured for 20 months in French and American oak.
2004 was an outstanding vintage in Rioja, and the most appealing aspect of 2004 Reservas are the fact that they are released ready to drink, but can age very gracefully indeed. Bodegas Campillo age their Reservas for no less than 20 months in American oak, which gives the wines very rich and seductive flavours of vanilla and coconut to complement the dried plums Tempranillo fruit.
