Capçanes, a village hidden away in the Priorato hills inland from Tarragona has a long wine growing history. Following phyloxera, one fifth of the area was replanted, mostly with Garnacha. Some vineyards are almost 100 years old, although yields are low. In 1933 five families from the village established Celler de Capçanes. Today at Capçanes two winemakers combine their talents. Angel Teixido, the most experienced winemaker at the winery, is also in charge of viticulture. Jurgen Wagner, who studied at Geisenheim and the University of Tarragona, brings his experience to composing and styling the blends. This is a dynamic winery producing exciting wines.
Deep red ruby colour. Complex aromas of ripe cherry, plums, small black berries and vanilla, smoky, toasty oak flavors. Full bodied with soft tannins, wonderful fresh acidity; fine Glycerin sweetness; good length.
