The wine

The Pago de los Capellanes Crianza is a wine that hardly needs any introduction. It’s one of the main bastions of the Pedrosa de Duero winery, a red which, despite sharing the limelight with the bodega’s four other reds, has managed to get plenty of attention for itself due to its huge personality. It’s a real classic in the Ribera del Duero, a medium-bodied Ribera, long, balanced and very attractive.

What does this wine taste like?

It’s a wine that’s refined and honest on the nose, with the fruit aromas blending well with those resulting from ageing, a harmonious mixture of plums, blackberries, vanilla, pepper and roasted notes and the characteristic aroma of liquorice that’s typical of the Tempranillo variety. On the palate, it’s delicate and firm at the same time, creamy and balsamic.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2014 Crianza has much more moderate ripeness than the 2011, which was the previous vintage I tasted of this wine. In fact, I loved this 2014, that showed very good balance and a nice combination of power and elegance, ripeness and restraint, fruit and oak. It's 100% Tempranillo matured in 300-liter French barriques for one year. The palate was equally balanced, with elegant tannins and good freshness. 350,000 bottles produced.

Harvesting the grapes normally starts in October and the must begins fermenting shortly afterwards, with native yeasts. Once fermentation has finished, the wine is transferred to 300-litre French oak barrels where it will mature and perfect for twelve months before bottling.

As is usual with Pago de los Capellanes, it’s produced solely using Tempranillo grapes grown on calcareous-clay soils, and shares with its bodega companions the elegance and structure which now seem intrinsically part of the Rodero Villa family’s winery.


The winery

Pago de los Capellanes

Pago de los Capellanes

Right in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, and on lands that once belonged to a chaplaincy back in the 13th to 14th Centuries, the married partnership of Rodero-Villa and their team put much effort into presenting a range of high quality wines, the fruit of “tranquillity, care and patience”.
