Description

Casa Cesilia Crianza: A Jewel of Alicante’s Winemaking Tradition

Embark on a sensory journey with Casa Cesilia Crianza, a testament to the rich winemaking heritage of Alicante. Crafted by the historic Casa Cesilia, this wine is a reflection of the winery’s commitment to ecological, sustainable, and environmentally friendly production practices, a philosophy adopted since 2009. The vineyards, nestled in a privileged enclave on the outskirts of Novelda, benefit from a Mediterranean climate with continental influences and regular winds, ensuring a slow ripening of the grapes and protection against fungal diseases​​.

Casa Cesilia Crianza is a blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Petit Verdot, varieties that thrive in the winery’s vineyards, benefiting from the unique climatic conditions of Alicante. The wine showcases the estate’s dedication to expressing the characteristic features and authenticity of its terroir-driven wines​​.

The production process of Casa Cesilia Crianza begins with a meticulous hand harvest, with yields less than 2 kg of grapes per vine to respect the fruit’s integrity. Following a pre-fermentation maceration facilitated by rapid cooling, the wine undergoes fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. This slow maceration aims to gently extract tannins and anthocyanins, followed by malolactic fermentation. The aging process spans 12 months in a mix of French (70%), Eastern European (20%), and American (10%) oak barrels of 225 and 500 liters, contributing to the wine’s complexity and elegance​​.

This Crianza presents a high-layer cherry red color with a luminous ruby rim, offering an intense nose where balsamic notes, ripe red fruits, and hints of cedar wood stand out. Its palate is characterized by a good tannic structure, delicacy, and a sweet sensation without any aggressiveness, leading to a finish reminiscent of Mediterranean spices. With an aging potential of 6 to 8 years, Casa Cesilia Crianza is best enjoyed between 15 and 17ºC and pairs wonderfully with Mediterranean dishes, meats, sausages, duck breast, and cheeses​​.

Casa Cesilia, a winery founded in 1707, not only pays tribute to the senses through its exquisite wines but also invites visitors to explore its vineyards and winemaking process, offering an immersive experience in the heart of Alicante’s wine country​​.

Experience the embodiment of Alicante’s winemaking excellence with Casa Cesilia Crianza, a wine that perfectly captures the essence of its origin, reflecting the winery’s longstanding heritage and innovative spirit in every glass.
