Winery Altos del Marqués follows the tradition started by the Cerrolaza family years ago with the creation of a small winery adjacent to the family house in Hornos del Moncalvillo.
Built in a "chateau" style, this winery belongs to an exclusively family limited liability company, Bodegas Altos del Marqués S.L, and it´s located in its own vineyards on the outskirts of Logroño.
The winery owns 49 H (120.98 acres) of vineyard distributed in several areas, triangle-shaped, with vertexes in La Grajera (Logroño), Yagüe-El Cortijo and Hornos de Moncalvillo, in one of the highest quality areas of Rioja wine. This quality is due to the richness of the terrain, antiquity of the vineyard, divided into small plots and the lavish care taken in the production phase.
The Cerrolaza family have concentrated their efforts on making a modern high-quality viticulture. In order to obtain the best possible grapes, they apply the latest technology to remove vigour from the vine-stocks, to de-leaf the vines, to prune specifically according to each area and for every type, and to utilize a double-selection in the vineyard and in the cellar. Ensuring that the quality of the grape is the basis for the quality of the wine, the Cerrolaza family focuses on their terrain using the latest technology as the only way of obtaining and guaranteeing great wines. As a result, they obtain wines with identity, an expression of their vineyards.
|Region Produced in||Hornos de Moncalvillo - La Rioja|
|Cask||American white oak casks, French Oak|
|Made with||100% Tempranillo|
|Tasting Notes||Very dark, intense cherry in colour, clean and clear. Of great aromatic complexity, it offers appealing aromas that blend the fruit-bearing bottom of the varietal Tempranillo backed by oaky vanilla and an appetizing whiff of toffee. On the palate, it is long, with an extraordinary finish and a perfect balance between the tannin of the casks and a notable fruit-bearing load. An aromatic, pleasant palate lingers in time, with fresh, balsamic hints.|
