The perfect setting
After several years of surveying among the best villages and vineyards, Bodegas Finca La Capilla, an estate covering 60 hectares, encompasses several plots in a single vineyard of about 50 ha that will be expanded in the short term with a new planting project of 10 ha. The vineyard is distributed between La Horra, Anguix and Roa, an area of recognized prestige within the Designation of Origin to which the Tempranillo is perfectly suited.
It is true that the characteristics of the area are at the limit of vine-growing conditions: an average altitude of over 800 m, extremely cold and harsh winters, and very hot and dry summers. The plots enjoy a period of slow and complete ripening, with temperature variations between day and night of over 20 °C. These conditions favour the harvesting of grapes which are rich in powerful tannins, full of colour and with an excellent polyphenolic structure.
The plots are divided and categorized by their qualitative potential according to the type of final wine and reflect several physiological parameters evaluated previously: orientation, topography, date of plantation, rootstock, etc. A fundamental criterion, given more consideration during zoning and selection, is the type of soil.
The vineyards contain a high heterogeneity of soils, with high wine-growing potential, predominately old soils from the Tertiary period, poor and with low levels of organic matter. Their sandy loam texture provides very good aeration and drainage conditions.
