Details

A single varietal Tinta del País grapes (aka Tempranillo), this Spanish red wine is made from grapevines more than 50 years of age scattered over some of Ribera del Duero best terroirs.

Produced by Bodega Protos, the grapes were harvested at an optimal ripening point, selected in the vineyard and brought to the cellar, where they underwent another selection process.

Then they were macerated and fermented at a temperature between 28ºC and 30ºC for 24 days with daily pump-overs and punch-downs.

After that, Protos Reserva 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, this red wine from Ribera del Duero spent a further 18 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Drink Protos Reserva 2013 from now to 2025.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Spanish red wine Protos Reserva has a clean, bright, claret colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Complex and intrincate, this varietal Tinta del País suggests notes 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.

Palate

Bold and elegant, this reserve red wine by Bodegas Protos is information-rich, exhibiting subtle notions of red and black fruit fused with the 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 2013 makes a superb pairing with meat dishes, particularly game.

  2. the first review by Hal Ashby on 8/1/2018

    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.
