Produced by Pago de Los Capellanes, Pago de Los Capellanes Joven Roble is made from a selection of the best grapes coming from 20 plots located in Pedrosa de Duero, at the heart of the Ribera del Duero DO,
This young Spanish red wine is entirely crafted from Tempranillo. After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were first destemmed and then cold-soaked in stainless steel tanks. Then they were fermented in those same tanks at a controlled temperature and with daily pump-overs. After that, this red wine from Ribera del Duero underwent malolactic fermentation for over a period of 3 weeks.
Finally, the wine was transferred into new, 300-litre French oak barrels and aged for 5 months.
Finally, Pago de los Capellanes Roble 2017 was gently fined prior to its bottling.
Drink now until 2022.
The red wine Pago de Los Capellanes Joven Roble shows a medium-high cherry coloured robe with a garnet rim.
A single varietal Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero this wine is fruit-driven, with plenty of lively, succulent red fruit, a touch of jamy plums and some flowery touches. This wine by Pago de los Capellanes also suggests some sweet overtones of vanilla, toffee and spices. A young Ribera indeed!
Gloriously young, the wine has a smooth entrance on the palate, showing a considerable body and notes of wild berries, creamy notes and some herbal hints. This red wine aged in oak from Ribera del Duero is lush and meaty, with ripe tannins and a good acidity. Clean and very well crafted.

Flawless young Ribera.
Very affordable Ribera from a bodega that produces top-notch reds. I've drinking this on an almost daily basis for some time and it is ¡excellent. It certainly lifts up your spirit in this damn bloody weather.
