Characteristics of Marqués de Cáceres M.C
Marqués de Cáceres M. C. 2012 is a red wine from the IO La Rioja produced by the Marqués de Cáceres winery. This is a varietal wine, which is only made using Tempranillo.
The grapes come from an area of 11.2 hectares divided into five small pieces of land in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. These are staggered at five different heights, ranging from 400 to 550 metres in the Rioja Alta and 380 to 500 metres in the Rioja Alavesa. The vines are between 65 and 90 years old and mostly grown in clay-calcareous soils.
The method of grape growing is traditional, influenced by the Atlantic climate, and harvesting is carried out manually, plot by plot, in boxes of 15 kilos. They are then maintained at a temperature of between 5 and 6 degrees for a period of two days and finally undergo a double selection and vibration.
The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeast, to a maximum temperature of 28º. The maceration, which takes place after this first process lasts up to 30 days. Micro-oxygenation ocurs until light begins malolactic fermentation in new French medium toasted oak barrels. After this process, which lasts three for months, the wine is aged in barrels for 12 months. The wine spends at least six months in bottle.
The Marqués de Cáceres Winery is located in the town of Cenicero distant about 20 km from Logroño, in the Rioja Alta. Founded by Enrique Forner in 1970, the winery has already become a classic and acclaimed winery in DO La Rioja.

La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
Marqués de Cáceres, and especially its founder, Enrique Forner, revolutionized the concept of Rioja wine in the 70s with a business model focused exclusively on quality. An obsession that, even today, remains one of the pillars on which the fifth generation of this illustrious wine family is established. A spirit based on continuous evolution, with a remarkable policy of investment in innovation and technology, but also far from the more or less passing trends. Currently, the wines from Marques de Cáceres are present in more than 120 countries. But, above all, they are the reality that interprets the personal challenge of its founder. His innate sensitivity and his unique vision of the future have made his wines take part in that secret complicity between science, nature, and pleasure, harvest after harvest.
