This expressive Spanish red wine is made from 18 plots planted with grapevines 30 years on average. They are located in the town of Pedrosa del Duero, at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level. Soils are composed of clay and limestone.
Meticulously harvested, the grapes were selected on site and, once in the cellar, fermented with indigenous yeasts with daily pump-overs and punch-downs.
After a period of about a month, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was drawn off to complete malolactic fermentation.
Finally, this wine by Pago de los Capellanes was aged for 12 months in new and 2n year French oak barrels.
