Product Description
Details

One of the most representative wines produced in Ribera del Duero, Protos Crianza Mágnum comes in a 1.5-litre bottle, a key feature that guarantees a longer and steadier ageing process.

A single varietal Tempranillo, this Spanish red wine is made from grapevines over 25 years of age. In order to reduce yields and optimize sun exposure, the plants are green pruned at the beginning of every growing season

Once the grapes were brought to the facilities of Bodegas Protos, they were destemmed and gently crushed prior to the beginning of the vinification process.

The wine must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks, with pump-downs of the solid skin cap and punch-overs of the underlying wine juice performed on a daily basis.

After that, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was aged for 14 months in oak barrels, one third French and two thirds American.

Finally, Protos Crianza Mágnum 2015 was aged for a further year in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Aerate the wine a little before drinking. Drink through 2028.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Protos Crianza Magnum has a clean, very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Deep and intense, this Tempranillo from Peñafiel smells of plums, blackberries and cranberries, along with Jamaican pepper, toffee, fine wood and sweet spices. On the background, this Crianza red wine suggests notions of flowers and balsam.

Palate

Palate-caressing and inviting, this wine by Bodegas Protos has a remarkable freshness, and an acidity that announces a long life. Wild berries, cocoa, undergrowth and spices combine in a most gracious manner. This crianza red wine from Ribera del Duero has a long finish with spicy and balsamic remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A wine with a long life ahead, Protos Crianza 2015 Mágnum is great with roasted meats, casseroles and Ibérico ham.
