Characteristics of César Príncipe

César Príncipe Crianza is a red wine from Cigales prepared by César Príncipe. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo.

César Príncipe Crianza comes from grapes from three different plots located in Fuensaldaña, Valladolid. The vines are old and they have a very low density.

The harvest is manual, the clusters, once in the cellar, go through a process of complete stripping. A cold maceration is performed for about two days. The resulting juice from this process is subsequently fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 28 and 30 degrees.

After the first fermentation of about a week, maceration occurs in contact with the skins for three weeks.

César Príncipe Crianza then undergoes malolactic fermentation in some barrels and the rest in deposits.

César Príncipe Crianza is finally aged in French oak barrels (80%) and American barrels (the remaining 20%) for a period of 14 months. The barrels are renewed and no transfer occurs.

The César Príncipe winery, named after its founder, has 40 acres of old vines with an average age of above 60 years. They are one of the greatest exponents of Cigales.

Reviews

D.O. Cigales

Winery César Príncipe

The D.O Cigales was until recently a region that produced wines that were defined by the rural and traditional nature of the region and its ancient history. The wines here were made using traditional techniques such as stone vats, treading the grapes by foot and fermentation left to the vagaries of nature. However, over the past two decades, the reality of wine here has become something very different. One only has to enter any of the of the regions renowned wineries to notice that their wines have taken the highway of modernity, shaking off their old reputation. The region has continued to produce rosés, although now juicier, fresher and well balanced. The region is also leaning ever more towards the production of red wines, following the example set by other regions along the Duero river, although perhaps with the difference that here they may be easier to drink.
