Characteristics of Protos Roble

Protos Roble is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero produced by Bodegas Protos. This wine is a varietal Tinta del País.

The grapes used grows in vineyards where the harvest is done manually and the grapes go through a selection process.

The grapes are destemmed and macerated cold to extract the best flavour from the skins. The subsequent fermentation takes place at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Protos Roble is aged for six months in American oak barrels before resting another half year in the bottle.

Protos, which in Greek means "first" is one of the historic cellars on the Spanish landscape. It was established in 1927 and was the first wine produced in Ribera.

The Tinta del País vines of this cellar now cover almost the entire geography of Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Protos Roble

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
Protos Roble 2016 stands out for being a juicy wine. The short ageing in barrels has given it a good complexity and more round tannins that make it more pleasant, in this vintage marked by the good ripening of the grape. One of the reference Roble (oak) wines within Ribera de Duero.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.

    07/03/19 Protos Roble 2016 Yummy Second time I have ordered this wine from Decantalo. The first was for my husbands birthday and this time is just.....for me And I ordered 6 bottles this time too
  •  
    25/01/19 Protos Roble 2016 This is my husbands favourite wine, having lived and worked in Spain previously for 4 years. Unfortunately it can't be bought in the UK, and the only place we have found it is in a local tapas restaurant for £35 a bottle I found it on this site for £7.50 a bottle, and although I had to pay around £16 for shipping, this is completely understandable and just mean't I had to buy 3 bottles to make it worth it..... ;) It's rich and strong, and is very easy to drink (too easy). Will definitely come back

    La Ribera del Duero tells us a story about an ancestral tradition that goes back to the 9th century, and which was already used my the monks of the Order of the Cistercians. A story about farms and terroirs, a large winemaking kingdom that has its roots back in the Middle Age, and whose imprint it hidden in the essence of its villages, its villas and its castle, Castillo de Peñafiel, on the of the most important fortresses of the region. Still preserved in the inside of the castle is the ageing winery of Protos, the first winery in the area, alongside Vega Sicilia, that sold bottled Ribera del Duero wines.
