Characteristics of Protos Crianza

Protos Crianza is a red wine from Ribera del Duero produced by Bodegas Protos. This winery, founded in 1927, is proud to be the first winery in Ribera del Duero, hence its name Protos which in Greek means "first".

In terms of location, the winery is located in the town of Peñafiel (Valladolid), on the same mountain where the Peñafiel Castle is located.

Protos Crianza wine is made from 100% Tinta del País (Tempranillo). The grapes come from vineyards planted in poor soils, low in organic matter and with a sandy texture.

The climate is continental Mediterranean with dry, hot summers and long, cold winters, with night frosts that can reach -18 ° C.

In addition, large temperature fluctuations between day and night favour the slow ripening of the grapes, which contributes to increased accumulation of sugars in the grapes and a higher concentration of tannins and polyphenols.

To prepare Protos Crianza, a first aging is carried out in French and American oak for 14 months and another aging in the bottle for 12 months from the end of the first aging.

Alcohol: 15.0%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
