Marqués de Cáceres Crianza is a wine from Rioja produced by Marqués de Cáceres, a winery that has more than four decades experience producing quality wines. It was founded in 1970 by Enrique Forner and pioneered the renewal of wines from Rioja. Currently, the fifth generation of the family is in charge of the winery.
The vineyards are spread throughout the Rioja Alta and Alavesa. The climate in the Rioja Alta is continental and moderate, marked by a Cantabrian influence. The climate in the Rioja Alavesa has the Mediterranean influence of the Cantabrian Sea. The mountains act as a natural barrier against the cold north winds so that temperatures are milder. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (85%), Graciano and Grenache (15%) from 20 year old vines planted on stony and calcareous clay soils or poor quality. As for processing, after selection of the grapes, the stems are separated to avoid herbaceous flavours, the wine is left with its skins in stainless steel tanks to ferment. During this process, pumping and skin extraction takes place.
The temperature is 25º. A second fermentation is carried out to transform the malic acid into lactic acid, an important modification to the organoleptic character of the wine. Marqués de Cáceres Crianza spends 12 months in American (50%) and French (50%) oak barrels and for 12 months, before spending 10-12 months in bottle.
