Characteristics of Protos Reserva

Protos Reserva is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region produced by Bodegas Protos, a winery founded in 1927. The term ‘protos’ derives from the greek Word for ‘first’. The winery took this name since it was indeed the first winery in the Ribera del Duero region. The winery is located Peñafiel, a town in Valladolid.

The area is home to a mediterranean climate with a continental influence, characterised by little rainfall (the most occuring during spring and autumn), dry summers and long, harsh winters. Temperatures vary greatly between seasons, but also between day and night, which causes a slow ripening of the grapes.

The wine is made solely using Tinta del País (Tempranillo) grapes, which are taken from vineyards that are planted at an altitude of 750-900 metres. The harvest is carried out manually using 20kg capacity boxes.

As for the ageing process, Protos Reserva spends a minimum of 18 months in French and American oak barrels and after spends a minimum of 24 months in the bottle before being put on the market.

Tasting notes Protos Reserva

Sight Beautiful cherry red colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright, with an abundant steady-falling coloured tear. Nose Complex and elegant nose. Black fruit in harmony with elegant and noble toasted aromas. The more it is opened, the more nuances we can find. Taste In the mouth, it is a fleshy and tasty wine with a great and well-scructured mid-palate. Sharp tannins, with a long and very persistent finish. A classic wine. Elegant, serious and full of nuances.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Dark cherry colour with red brick coloured edge. Vivid and bright, with dense legs that dye the glass.
Nose Complex aromas of fruit with hints of vanilla, typical of the wines of Ribera del Duero. As the minutes go by, nuances of spices and roasted appear, forming a complex and elegant bouquet.
Taste

Delicius and elegant wine, full of fruit and full of nuances. Velvety and smooth in mouth, with a very long aftertaste and remarkable persistence.
