On the nose a blend of toasted wood and hints of spice, combined with notes of candied red fruit and hints of liquorice. Round, pleasant, with voluminous tannins, revealing a slight aftertaste of ripe fruit. Lengthy and round finish.

The wines of Marques de Caceres are made as a partnership between one of the region`s most innovative producers and Michel Rolland, one of the world`s leading consultant winemakers. Their class and breeding shines through.

The 2016 harvest was conditioned by a rainy winter followed by slightly lower rainfall than usual. After a somewhat dry summer, the almost total absence of rain in mid-September and October allowed a slow and complete ripening of the fruit. A gradual harvest during of October allowed us to collect a perfectly ripe and completely healthy grape, with round and sweet tannins that permitted us to obtain structured and very fruity wines.

Mainly clay-like and calcareous soils. Plots from Rioja Alta with ferrous sub-soil.

Completely manual harvest, prioritising the order of harvest based on the ripeness of each different area.

A temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation is carried out of the carefully destemmed clusters in stainless-steel tanks. A prolonged maceration with the skins of up to 20 days follows, in order to extract colour, aromas and tannic structure. Malolactic fermentation in carried out between new barrels and stainless-steel tanks, depending on the plots and their areas. Once this is complete, all wines go into barrel with subsequent racking every 6 months.

Aged for 12 months in French oak (60%) and American (40%) barrels. The barrels used for aging the wines are: 25 % new barrels, 25 % two-wine barrels, 25 % three-wine barrels and 25 % maximum four-wine barrels.

Enjoy with with lamb dishes, grilled vegetables, paella, ham, chorizo and cheeses.
