Description

From 50-year-old vines, the Protos Reserva 2017 spends 18 months in French and American oak barrels and 24 months in bottle before it is released. It is a lovely dark cherry red colour with intense aromas of black fruit, liquorice, vanilla, sweet spice and balsamic on the nose. The palate has great balance with good acidity and a persistent, harmonious finish.

With a history dating back almost 100 years, the mission of Bodegas Protos has always been to listen to and understand the terroir. For the last 10 years, Protos has been studying every plot of land it owns, observing how Tempranillo clones adapt and change in each location to gain a deeper understanding of the vine, and ultimately craft the best expression of each terroir. The vineyard area spans an enormous 1,400 hectares throughout the Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Cigales DO’s, with some of the vines aged at between 50 and 100 years old. The soils are a mixture of loam-clay-sand, as well as some limestone and silt. The winery at Bodegas Protos was designed in 2008 by Rogers Stirk Harbour and is an architectural delight – well worth a visit if you find yourself in Ribera del Duero!
