The Rodero-Villa marriage and their team have been working on small scale production (5.000 kg of grapes per hectare – under the 7.000 kg allowed by the Ribera del Duero Regulatory Board- ) in order to get a strict quality control of their wines. Their seeking of quality has granted them with one of the best sold wines in Spain.
Pago de los Capellanes Roble is made from Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Merlot (10%).
It offers a clean bright cherry colour. On the nose, it shows intense red fruit of the forest and floral aromas with dairy and vanilla hints due to their briefly ageing in wood (150 days). The palate is broad, elegant, lingering and velvety, without losing the liveliness of the great young Ribera wines.
A cheap wine at 9,35€ with an excellent quality.
