Designation of Origin Cigales

Valdelosfrailes Pago de las Costanas (Designation of origin Cigales) is a living history of the region. This red wine of the Tempranillo variety is made in vineyards that are more than 125 years old from a single Hamlet in a particularly peculiar terrain that soaks the wine with its 'wisdom'. The Pago de las Costanas vineyards are harvested by hand in a triple-selection process, starting in the vineyard, then by cluster in the Winery and finally berry by berry. 

 

Description

Made with grapes from our 125-year-old vineyards that soak their longevity and wisdom into the wine through the roots adapted to the terrain and its complexity and are harvested by hand, selecting grapes with a yield between 1,500 and 2,000 kilos per hectare.

The famous wine critic Jancis Robinson said about this wine, 'Valdelosfrailes Pago de las Costanas symbolises the union between altitude and minerality. The old vines are capable of producing very concentrated fruit, particularly blackberry, which is so prevalent in this region's soils, which has pebbles and clay".

The wine

This wine is dominated by cardinal notes with garnet rims. It is delicate and extremely aromatic in the nose, with notes of ripe black fruits and hints of fine wood and tobacco box that evolve into more spicy tones, both on the nose and on the palate.

In the mouth, it is ample, powerful and with a lingering, mineral and very elegant finish. It stands out for its balance between strength, intensity and elegance. A perfect integration characterised by its origins in such peculiar soils and winemaking excellence.
