Pago de los Capellanes Ribera Del Duero Joven 2015
The winery was built around eight centuries-old walnut trees. The first phase was completed in 1996. The spectacular aging cellar, with exposed concrete arches, is ten meters underground. The whole project was completed in 2010. While decidedly bold and modern, it also respects and highlights the beauty of its environment, summing up the winery's ethos. Farming/vinification practices are sustainable. The vineyards are farmed organically in vintages that do not present too many difficulties, and the wines are vegan.
Made from 100% Tempranillo from vines growing on a chalky clay soil, in Pedrosa de Duero. Harvest begins early October, and fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. Aged for five months in medium toast, new French oak barrels. At the end of this period, it is put into tanks to rest, lightly filtered, then bottled.

Bottle ShopWe love this Ribera del Duero. Deep, rich, exotic in flavor...the vintage is shining in this young (joven) wine. The intense floral and red forest fruit bouquet, leads to more of the same on the palate with hints of vanilla. Although the tannins are big, they are velvety, and the wine has a super long finish. Excellent. Will age in cellar as well for 5+ years if not longer.
