Bodega Protos Crianza 2011
With its bright cherry red, this crianza already reveals what is in it. 26 long months pass until it can be enjoyed ? For 14 months, this wine from 100% Tinta del Pais (empranillo grapes) ripens in French and American oak barrels and then a full year in the bottle. The result is a complete bouquet with aromas of ripe fruit with perfectly integrated oak notes. Full-bodied on the palate, with fine spices. This red wine was awarded by Mundus Vini (Gold, 2015).
