Characteristics of Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal is a red wine made in the Ribera del Duero by the Pago de los Capellanes winery.
The name of the winery has many years of history. In the fourteenth century the parish of Pedrosa del Duero, the town where the winery is located, housed a parish in which the chaplains gave Mass in exchange for small plots of land. Over time, the parish grew to a large plot.
Years later the land passed to the City Council, but for the locals that land would still always be the chaplains' plot.
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal is a varietal Tempranillo made with grapes from a single plot, El Nogal. A small plot of 6 hectares of very limited production with calcareous clay soils.
The temperature variation during ripening time is around 20ºC between day and night. A strong contrast helps a perfect ripening of the grapes and gives a very balanced acidity.
The harvest is done manually. The first stage of the development is a grape maceration performed at low temperature (14ºC), which lasts for 6 days.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place over 28 days, at a temperature of 26ºC, in vats of French oak with indigenous yeasts from the vineyard.
Once the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, the wine goes to new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurs for 20 days at 22 ° C.
Pago de los Capellanes El Nogal spends 22 months aging in new French oak barrels, rotating through 4 different types of oak.
Once the aging is complete, it is bottled unfiltered and unclarified. A wine from the Ribera del Duero which is elegant and complex, with a long life in the bottle.
Serve at 16ºC
