Red Wine Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal 2016
Availability: In stock
This high-end Spanish red wine is one of the flagship products of bodega Pago de los Capellanes, one of the most prestigious in Ribera del Duero.
A single-vineyard varietal Tempranillo, Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal was produced from a 6-hectare plot planted with vines coming from a massal selection sourced from Finca El Picón, the winery's best vineyard.
The vines grow in clay-limestone soils that bring a particular finesse and minerality to the wine. Moreover, yields are quite low.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were refrigerated, macerated for 7 days and then fermented in new French cone-shaped vats using indigenous yeasts.
After that, Pago de los Capellanes 2016 from Ribera del Duero completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels from different origins. During that period, the wine was racked four times.
It was not filtered, clarified or stabilized before its bottling.
Decant this reserva red wine from Ribera del Duero at least 1 hour before drinking.
This wine in only produced in exceptional vintages.
The red wine Pago de los Capellanes Finca El Nogal is bright purple with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tempranillo shows complex notes of forest berries, red and blue flowers and sweet spices, delicately nuanced by remembrances of vanille, cedar, cinnamon, Moroccan leather, toast and smoke. In the background, there are enticing mineral suggestions, with hints of tobacco, liquorice and sandalwood.
Bold and sophisticated, but still tight, with plenty of room for growth, this wine of bodega Pago de los Capellanes exhibits a bridled power, with velvety tannins and a crisp, solid acidity. Spices, menthol, wild berries, deep mineral notes, and intimations of underbush and flowers. Long finish with some toasted and smokey remembrances.
