$79.50 $67.50
Country / Region: Spain
Varietal: Tempranillo
Vintage: 2012

Focused, elegant and balanced Tempranillo with blackberry, black currant, oak spices and licorice

Tasting Note

Aged for 12 months in French oak and made with 100% Tinta Fina - the Ribera del Duero Tempranillo grape.    

Dark colour, almost black with a purple rim.   The nose is expressive with blackberries, blackcurrant, licorice, and floral spices.   Those flavours continue on the palate with silky tannins and full bodied with oak spices.   This wine is quite focused, yet elegant and balanced, leading to a long eucalyptus finish. Immensely enjoyable, especially when paired with some Spanish jamon serrano and goats cheese.  Yum!

Drinking well now but this is a great wine for your cellar as it will continue to develop well over the next five years.

About Pago de los Capallenes

Pago de los Capellanes is located barely a kilometre from the village of Pedrosa de Duero, nestled deep in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region of Spain.

In the 14th century, a chaplainry existed in the village of Pedrosa de Duero. The inhabitants of the village donated small parcels of land to the chaplains in appreciation for the religious duties that they performed in the area. Over time, the chaplainry came to have a sizeable landholding. Some 500 years later, in 1855, the properties of the church and clergy were given over to the city council as part of the Ecclesiastical Confiscations of Mendizábal. Despite this, the inhabitants of Pedrosa continued to call the area “Pago de los Capellanes” in honour of the chaplains. The estate was home to vineyards. Vines cultivated for generations. Today, these have grown to become one of the most prestigious wineries in the Ribera del Duero region, the Rodero Villa Winery. The fruit of their work: Pago de los Capellanes.

The vineyards of Pago de los Capellanes only grow Tinto Fino or Tempranillo grapes, the variety indigenous to the Ribera del Duero region. Although the winery was initially founded with just a few select vines, we have expanded year after year with plantings of our best clones. The plants that show the best adaptation to the soil and climate are selected in the field for further plantings. This ensures ample variety of parcels in the vineyard. Each plot receives personalised care matching its unique features, so that we can harvest the best possible fruit.
