Wine Description

Wine from old vineyards (+60 yo), planted in south facing slopes. The soils in clay with a limestone bedrock. Manually harvested in 20kg crates, and double selection of bunches and fruits at the winery. The wine remains 24 months in french barriques and 36 months in bottle prior to release. It has potential for long keep, when kept in appropiate condintions. Better to decant.

Tasting Notes

Color: Dark cherry color with garnet rim.

Nose: Expressive and complex. The terciary aromas evoke a big range of smells that reminds us of jam, cocoa, tobacco, mineral notes, tofee with slightly smoked hints.

Palate: Round tannins with long afterPalate. Good aging potential. This wine leaves a very elegant and silky afterPalate, typical of Protos Gran Reserva
