One of Ribera del Duero's outstanding estates, located near the village of Pedrosa del Duero, the property was established in 1980 but the first release under the Pago de los Capellanes was not until the 1996 vintage. Since then, awards and accolades have been won across the range thanks to meticulous attention to detail in both vineyard and cellar. One hundred hectares are planted, with eighty currently mature, roughly divided into 80% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet and 10% Merlot. Low yields (an average of 35 hl/ha) and immaculately tended vines produce super concentrated, pure and polished wines.
Pago de los Capellanes Tinto Roble (Joven) is made from estate grown grapes from Pedrosa de Duero. Only those grapes showing higher concentration of colour are chosen for the Tinto Roble; all unacceptable grape clusters are rejected. Vineyard yields are limited to less than 4,460 pounds of grapes per acre (5,000 kilograms per hectare). Soils are clay-chalk
Vivid purple in colour with intense black fruit, liquorice and Christmas spice. The palate is approachable with clove, black pepper, woodland berries and sweet vanilla characters with a crunchy red fruit, pure and polished finish; tannins are firm and fine from exceptional use of oak.
