In 1970, Enrique Forner founded Marqués de Cáceres Unión, a historic alliance of growers in the village of Cenicero in the Rioja Alta subregion of Rioja. The pioneering Forner family has been devoted to the wine trade for five generations and has been a major player since they first started late in the 19th century.
Their search for the best vine growers and vineyards in Rioja and the introduction of a Bordeaux concept revolutionized the production and business model of the entire region. They work with one single objective: producing the highest quality wines. Today this obsession continues to be the driving force of Cristina Forner, the fifth generation of this distinguished wine family.
Cristina’s Rioja Rosado is a particularly high note in her memorable lineup of wines. Comprised of mostly Tempranillo, this one has a lot of energy and a a very pretty pale pink color. On the nose, a floral bouquet accompanied by small red berry fruits and a slight touch of spice. This one offers a lot of juicy flavors with refreshing acidity and balanced structure. It’s an elegant rosé with character and good length.

90 Points, James Suckling
“Freshly crushed strawberries, plums and grapefruit on the nose, following through to a crisp and fresh palate. Simple and bone-dry, but has thirst-quenching crunchiness and a pithy finish.”
