Product Description

A varietal Tinta del PaísProtos Reserva 5º Año (formerly known as Protos Reserva) is made from vines more than 50 years old, scattered over some of Ribera del Duero best terroirs.

Produced by Bodegas Protos, the grapes were harvested fully ripen, selected in the vineyard and brought to the cellar, where they were selected again and macerated.

Then this Spanish red wine was fermented for 24 days at a temperature of 28ºC-30ºC, with daily pump-overs and punch-downs.

After that, this Reserva red wine from Peñafiel was transferred into 50% new French oak barrels, 30% 2nd year French oak barrels and 20% 2nd year American oak barrels, where it was aged for over a period of 18 months.

Clarified and filtered before its bottling, Protos Reserva 2016 5º Año aged for a further 42 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Decant this red wine from Ribera del Duero 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Protos Reserva 5º Año is medium purple with a violet rim.


Complex and intricate, this varietal Tinta del País carries aromas of black fruit mingled with remembrances of vanilla, clove, cinnamon and roasted coffee. Some hints of liquor-infused fruit, menthol and smoke over a mineral background complete the picture.


Bold and elegant, this reserva red wine of Bodegas Protos is information-rich and subtle, packing loads of red and black fruit, with notes of vanilla, tobacco and balsam coming from the oak ageing. Velvety tannins and well-balanced acidity. Intense, pleasant finish.

Our personal opinion

An absolute classic of great elegance, Protos Reserva 2016 5º Año will make a great pairing with meat dishes, particularly game.

At 6 years of age, this Protos vino is slowly reaching the top. Right now, I give it 92-93. I think at its best it will be a 95 point wine.
