The specially selected grapes for Cune Gran Reserva come from vineyards in Torrentalbo. The vines are 45 years old on average, head-trained and south and east facing, while the soils are clayey with pebbles.
The first wine produced by the company took its name from the initials CVNE. A fortuitous misspelling between the U and the V created the iconic Cune brand
