Product Description

One of the most representative wines from DO 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 varietal Tinta del País, 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 first destemmed and gently crushed. Then the wine must was 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 12 months in one third new, one third 2nd year, and one third 3rd year French and American oak barrels.

Finally, Protos Crianza 2018 Mágnum was aged for a further year in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Aerate this Crianza red wine at least half an hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Protos Crianza Magnum is medium purple with a garnet rim.


Deep and intense, this Tinta del País suggests aromas of plums, blackberries and cranberries, with hints of Jamaican pepper, toffee, fine wood and sweet spices. There are some floral and balsamic overtones as well.


Palate-caressing and inviting, this wine from 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. Long finish with spicy and balsamic remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A wine with a long life ahead, Protos Crianza 2018 Mágnum is great with roasted meats, casseroles and Ibérico ham.
