Produced from over 50-year-old vineyards, after a meticulous harvest the grapes were cold macerated and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at a temperature of 25ºC.
After that, this Spanish red wine was macerated for a further 20 days with daily pump-overs. Then Protos 27 2019 was transferred into new French oak barrels and aged for a period of 16 months.
Finally, this reserva red wine was bottled and aged for 12 months before hitting the market.
Aerate this red wine from Ribera del Duero 1 hour before drinking.
Pair with roast recipes and premium meat cuts.
The red wine Protos 27 is medium purple with a violet and bluish rim.
Surprisingly fresh and lively, this varietal Tempranillo suggests cranberries, bilberries and bluberries, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon and cedar, a hint of toast and remembrances of flowers and dry earth.
While retaining an unmistakable Ribera character, this wine from Bodegas Protos is balanced, fresh and subtle. Layers of flavour, with a tangy acidity and a gentle touch of oak. Complex finish with a spicy and mineral tinge.
