The Marques de Caceres Constanilla is a Tempranillo with a gorgeous ruby red color. This Rioja red has a fresh and crisp fragrance with vivid red berry and cherry notes that emphasize the wine’s brightness, with a hint of smokey vanilla. The mouthfeel is pleasant, rounded, and balanced, with soft, silky tannins—the perfect blend of fruit and subtle vanillin spice.
The majority of the Tempranillo and Viura plants used to produce the grapes are over 30 years old, and they are harvested according to a precise schedule of tastings and ripening tests to ensure ideal quality. This medium-bodied Spanish red wine is best paired with beef and lamb, but will work brilliantly with chicken and duck, as well.
Enrique Forner founded Marqués de Cáceres, Unión Vitivinicola, S.A. in 1970, a historic alliance between a region, an enterprising family that has been devoted to the wine trade for five generations, the best vine growers and vineyards in La Rioja, and a Bordeaux concept that revolutionized the production and business model with a single objective: quality to obtain the best wines, an obsession continues to guide Cristina Forner, the third generation of this family.
