Doroteo comes from very old Tempranillo vines, from the “Majuelo of Doreto” vineyard in Pedrosa del Duero, a small plot with vines planted in 1920 in very poor gravel soils with clay-loam.
The wine is a special edition elaborated to commemorate the winery’s 25th anniversary, with a special recognition to the grandfather Doroteo and all the winemakers whom, with their experience, tenacity and passion for the vineyard, represent the link to the origin of their history.
Doroteo has the unusual balance between maturity and freshness, something that can only be obtained from the oldest and well managed vines, this together with its long ageing in oak barrels and in bottle afterwards, give the wine the elegance and power which makes it so special.
The grapes are harvested after a selection process. Fermentation at controlled temperature with native yeasts in French Oak barrels, submitted to pump-overs and phenolic control.
Ageing for 36 months in 225-litre extra-fine grain French oak barrel, followed by another 24 months resting in bottle. Limited production of 5450 bottles.
Tasting Notes: A wine with great personality and concentration, shows balance between maturity and freshness. Massive wine, power-finesse, a big range of nuances, ripe black fruit and damson fruit, sweet spices and balsamic notes. Dry tannins, good structure and a long smooth finish.
Notes: Conserve in a horizontal position in a cool environment. Potential evolution over the next 25 years.
A relatively new winery, founded only in 1996, located close to the village of Pedrosa del Duero in the heart of the Ribera del Duero Region. Pago de los Capellanes is divided into 35 parcels, from which their grapes are vinified separately. The soil is made up of clay and chalk. In their vineyards only grow Tempranillo or Tinto Fino grapes, the variety indigenous to the region. They only harvest 5000 kg of grapes per hectare, well below the 7000 kg allowed by the Regulatory Council of the Ribera del Duero Region to guarantee the highest quality.
