Origin: Ribera del Duero, Spain
Protos Reserva [2011/2012]
Protos, which comes from the Greek word for "FIRST", has the pride and the privilege of having found maturity and ease in the best and the foremost of the wineries in the area and of having been a recognized trademark all this time. In 1927, boldness and the love a group of local vine growers felt for the land achieved the union of their best efforts, creating the Winery, the Foremost in the Ribera. A project for the future that has not only reached our days intact, it has grown and multiplies year by year and has taken its name proudly to the highest international levels. The 30s represented its definite settlement at the international level. The 1929 World Exposition in Barcelona gave a particularly strong impulse to this tendency, awarding Gold Medals to its red wines.
Intense bright dark cherry colour with garnet rim. Powerful, black fruits with nice toasty notes, spicy, creamy oak, complex and elegant. Powerful, flavourful, toasty, round tannins, good acidity, fruity and spicy. Good backbone and lingering finish.
