Opinión de los críticos
A textbook Tempranillo, the 2015 Pago Negralada has varietal aromas, red fruit, licorice and spices and a classical, velvety and elegant texture with focused and clean flavors, great harmony and a tasty, long finish. This is like an upgraded version of the Selección Especial. It's a good representation of the zone through its gentle tannins that kind of hide the natural power. It very faithfully represents the conditions of the year, the place and the variety. A true, honest Tempranillo. Bravo! There were 37 barriques of this, which filled 10,200 bottles and some large formats. Like all of the 2015s, it was bottled in May 2017. - Luis Gutiérrez.
One of those rare wines in which everything is at the right place: acidity, tannins, fruit, oak. Highly enjoyable now, in 15 years’ time it will become an unforgettable experience. The 1999 is now gorgeous. The vineyard is exceptional, planted in the lands of a former monastic order after extensive soil analysis and terroir selection works undertaken by the best specialists in Spain. 17 months’ oak.
A concentrated tempranillo with a ton of fine-grained tannins. This is still a little shy on the smoky and cocoa-powder nose, but is beginning to develop very nicely on the well structured palate. A touch less oak might have given this more. Drink or hold.
