The Reserva of Bodegas Protos from Castilla y León offers a dense ruby color in the wine glass. With a little side lay, the red wine glass reveals a charming garnet red hue at the rims. Swiveling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high density and richness, which is evident in church windows at the rim of the glass. The first nose of the Reserva reveals notes of mulberries, black currants and blackberries. The fruity aspects of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel aging such as even more fruity-balsamic nuances.
The Bodegas Protos Reserva presents itself to the wine enthusiast wonderfully dry. This red wine never appears coarse or meager, as one might expect from a wine in the top wine range. This dense red wine is full-bodied and multi-layered on the palate. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of Castile - León finally inspires with good length.

Vinification of the Bodegas Protos Reserva
This powerful red wine from Spain is made from the Tempranillo grape variety. The grapes grow in optimal conditions in Castilla - León. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of clay and limestone. The Reserva is an Old World wine through and through, as this Spaniard breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the grape harvest, the grapes arrive at the press house by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for 18 months in oak barrels.
