Product Description
Details

An homage to the 11 founding members of Bodegas Protos, which started the company back in 1927, Protos 27 is a varietal Tempranillo wine from Ribera del Duero.

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.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Protos 27 is medium purple with a violet and bluish rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

Judging by Protos 27 2019, it definitely seems that Bodegas Protos has embraced the current trend towards gentler and more approachable wines.

Nice Protos

Lovely vintage label. Quite fresh, it seems that Protos is moving away from beefy wines.
