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.

Ribera at its very best!
This is a very special Ribera from a winery that I've actually been to. It's a stunningly good wine which makes you want to tear through every bottle. Deep colour almost purple with that district Ribera oak and smoke as well as plenty of ripe soft fruit with a fantastic finish!by: Gus (07/11/2019) - Vintage 2016
Really like this wine and intend to re-order. It is very smooth, rounded and elegant. In fact it is one of the best Spanish reds I have tasted recently......and I have tasted a few. Thoroughly recommended.by: gigatron (31/01/2019) - Vintage 2015
Vino di buon livello
è un vino visivamente limpido, brillante, di colore granato vivace. Ha profumo intenso, persistente, ampio ed etereo. E' consigliato con un buon filetto di carne o con un buon brasatoby: Olav (21 Jan) - Vintage 2017
