Wine of the Day: Bodegas Finca La Capilla

From the heart of Ribera del Duero in Spain, Bodegas Finca La Capilla showcases dense, structured Tinta del Pais (the region’s version of Tempranillo) ideally as the sandy loam filled soils, poor in nutrients and organic matter, create the ideal base for the fruit, with very hot days and cool nights developing bold flavors, powerful tannins, and incredible acidity.

La Capilla Crianza ($30) showcases all of these characters in an elegant, beautifully finessed, approachable wine, melding black cherry, blackberry, creamy vanilla, toasted cedar, and spice. Lengthy and layered, the wine is a perfect example of the quality you can find throughout Spain at a reasonable price point. #cheers
