“Protos”, (in Greek “first”) is one of Spain’s most historic wineries. Established in 1927 near the town of Peñafiel, they were the first producers in what is today the highly regarded region of Ribera del Duero.
The Bodega’s state of the art winery is situated below the dramatic Peñafiel Castle.
The Roble is 100% Tinta del País (Tempranillo) from some of the estate’s younger vines – 15 -20 years of age. The grapes are hand picked and carefully sorted before a period of maceration and then fermentation for 15 days at 24°C in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.
Ageing is for 6 months in American oak followed by a further 6 months in bottle.
The appearance of the wine is bright cherry red with a purple edge. The nose is very expressive with fresh fruit, sweet spices, creamy oak and red berry aromas. The palate is full and fruity with round tannins and a long finish.
