Bright, cherry red with intense floral and red forest fruit aromas
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: The wine is a bright, cherry red with intense floral and red forest fruit aromas on the nose with subtle hints of vanilla from the brief exposure to oak. The palate has a full and velvety texture with plenty of elegant red forest fruit and very good length.
Serve: At 16-18c with grilled beef or duck breast with green peppercorns.
