Sweet, smooth tannins coat the palate. Full-bodied and persistant with an array of complex flavours.
Pago de los Capellanes has a recently expanded vineyard and a stunning modern winery, but the name itself shares its long history, dating back to the 14th century, when the God-fearing populace of nearby Pedrosa de Duero donated parcels of land to the local chaplains in recognition of their religious administrations.
The winery has been expanded, but here too there is respect for the past: from the outset, the architecture has been deliberately designed to showcase the remarkable 800-year-old walnut trees at the buildings centre.
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
Region: Spain / Ribera del Duero
Maker: Paco Casas
Notes: A deep, dark cherry-coloured with extraordinary intensity and complexity. Blackberries and floral notes are detected first on the nose. The fruit is well-integrated with the wood, displaying spicy aromas from the French oak; cinnamon, leather, tobacco, truffle and black liquorice. Sweet, smooth tannins coat the palate and the mouth is full-bodied and persistant with an array of complex flavours.
Serve: At 16-18c with grilled and roasted red meats.
