This crianza is a beautiful full rounded wine, consisting of ripe red fruit such as plums, blackberries and strawberries. Has aged for 12 months in French oak. The tannins are beautiful and give a good structure, but these do not dominate the pure fruit. The taste is medium-bodied with orange peel, tart red cherries and a hint of dark chocolate. This is a very balanced wine with a very long finish.

Vineyard for 2015 Pago de Los Capellanes Crianza

Pago de los Capellanes is located near the village of Pedrosa de Duera in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. An area of the Chaplains formed by areas of land planted with olive or grape crops. This is clearly an area with its own wine history. Pago de los Capellanes once started with some tinto fino (tempranillo) vines. After years of cloning the best grapes from that harvest, the company now owns 100 hectares of vineyards and belongs to the top of the DO. Quality is paramount and is maintained by a strict selection in the yard, during the cloning process and in the cellar.

The 100 hectares are divided over 35 plots, each plot has its own approach. Around the harvest period, a sample of the fruit is taken twice a day to determine the ripeness and evolution. The daytime temperature of 25 ° C with the contrasting 5 ° C at night gives the wine maturity, more color, soft tannin and above all a good acid structure. In the enormous underground cellar, which is just as imposing as a catacomb, the wines are aged for up to three years. The impressive long rows of French wooden barrels are arranged to the millimeter. There is serious maturing here, there is no doubt about it.

The Pago de los Capellanes wines have a soul and speak for themselves. From the young wine to the crus. El Nogal and El Picón are the real deal: fresh juice, creamy mouthfeel, length in days and digestibility that makes you refill the glass.
