2020 Joven Tempranillo

Pago de los Capellanes
Regular price $29.00

Pago de los Capellanes is located 1 kilometre from the village of Pedrosa de Duero, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region and is considered by some to be the more modern face of Ribera Del Duero, providing a perfect counterpoint to the wonderfully traditional Vega Sicilia. It is owned by the Rodero-Villa family and they now have over 70 hectares of vineyards.


The name means ‘land of the chaplains’, a reminder that the land was owned by chaplains until the church donated it to the city council in 1855. The vineyards are planted with a 100% Tempranillo and are divided into 35 different plots which are harvested separately. The wines are aged for one to three years (depending on style) in 22 different types of French oak, and offer a modern style alternative to the wines of Vega Sicilia.


The firm, chalky tannins are moderated here by juicy dark berry fruit character. Rocky minerality adds a terrific counterpoint. Intense floral and red forest fruit bouquet with a mild lactic note and hints of vanilla left by its exposure to the oak. In the mouth, the texture is full, elegant, long lasting and velvety.
