Review

Protos 27 is a homage to the eleven visionaries who founded Protos in 1927. A wine created from ten years of research and work into improving vine-growing techniques, vineyards, and barrels and selecting local yeast, as chosen by the winery's own technical team. An ambitious R&D project which has resulted in a classic Ribera del Duero blend with aromatic complexity and a lingering and balanced feeling on the palate.

A single-variety Tempranillo from vines over 50 years old, it undergoes a malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels before ageing in the same casks for 16 months. Finally, the wine is left to stand in the bottle for a further 12 months before its release onto the market. The final result is an example of the very best that Ribera del Duero can offer, a wine whose freshness, intensity, complexity and elegance seduces wine-lovers.

Protos 27 del 2017

Una scoperta - ma solo per me - non di certo per gli appassionati della Spagna (e non solo) di una cantina come Bodegas Protos così importante nella Ribera del Duero. Proverò di certo anche la Gran Reserva e la Selecciòn. Curiosità anche per il Verdejo
