Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 90
Vinous

Deep ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented cherry and dark berry aromas, along with hints of licorice and vanilla. Smooth and open-knit, showing good depth and energy to the juicy bitter cherry and blackberry flavors. A peppery nuance appears on the persistent finish, which is shaped by youthfully firm but harmonious tannin's. Drinking window: 2021 - 2027

Pago de Los Capellanes, Spain
Owned by Francisco Rodero and his wife Conchi Villa, Pago de los Capellanes is an estate located 1 km from Pedrosa de Duero - a Burgos village in which some of the best Ribera del Duero grapes are harvested. Its name has historical origins, harking back to a time when it belonged to the church and chaplains from nearby Pedrosa frequented the place. Today, the setting has been completely transformed. There is a 70-hectare vineyard surrounding the estate planted in espalier to Tempranillo (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (10%). The winery has plans to extend the vineyard to 80 hectares in order to supply itself exclusively with its own grapes and to achieve a limited production of 500,000 bottles per year. The winery has a unique 1600-square meter barrel facility, constructed completely underground in a hillside. In addition, the facility is equipped with the latest in equipment. The grapes are harvested in October to ensure that they have reached optimum ripeness. The harvest is then carefully transported to the cellar, where a rigorous selection of fruit takes place. The fully-stripped bunches are fermented and macerated with skins in steel vats (around 12 days for young wines and 30 days for Crianza, with the caps punched down several times daily) until sugar and density controls confirm that it is time to separate the wine and press the grape remnants. Next, cellar temperature is regulated to help malolactic fermentation. The Ribera's cold autumn generally makes it necessary to raise the temperature. After some rest and two rackings, every vat is tasted and evaluated to classify all the wines of the vintage. Vino Joven (Young Wine) is aged 3 months in oak barrels and bottled in the spring. The Crianza is aged in oak barrels (60% American and 40% French oak) for 12 months. The Reserva is aged 18 months in new oak barrels. Finally, there are 15 different types of barrels used in the wine-making. French oak is predominantly Allier and Nevers from Demptos and Radoux. American oak is sourced from Toneleria Magreñan, Burgos, and Demptos. All wines are bottled without any stabilization or filtration.

Ribera del Duero is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spice, dark fruit and smoky flavors in a bold Ribera del Duero will pair well with roasted and grilled meats, Mexican food and tomato-based sauces.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
