Pretty, vivid ruby colour with violet highlights that reflect its bright, young style. Floral bouquet (violets, wild flowers) and red berries. Pleasant acidity in the mouth with fresh, juicy fruit flavours, a balanced structure that blends with discreet tannins.

Description

VINEYARDS AND YIELDS

19 year-old vineyards, cultivated according to the rules and regulations that apply to organic vineyards. We have selected this parcel from the Finca Barrio plantation  that is regulated by organic viticulture and its respectful treatment of the environment. The plantation also has organic fruit trees planted near the meanders of the River Ebro.

 

SOIL

The vineyard is planted on stony soils that allow excellent drainage. Part of the pebbly ground is covered with a vegetable stratum, locally known as a “green mantle” that serves to attract insects and microorganisms as a means of pest control that totally respects the specific treatments authorised in this type of vineyard.

GRAPE VARIETIES

Marques de Caceres

Marques de Caceres was founded in 1970 by Henrique Forner, who had recently returned from living in Bordeaux, where his family had moved during the Spanish Civil War. Forner believed Rioja was too oaky and introduced measures to modernise its style. He was the first to use stainless steel fermentation and reduced the time his wines spent in barrel, he also used more new oak. These measures whilst radical at the time, have become much more prevalent across the region.
