NEW FORMATS MARK THE LAUNCHING OF PROTOS CRIANZA 2008 VINTAGE
This unique wine will be available in half-litre and Magnum bottles.
The Crianza 2008 from PROTOS is the new Ribera del Duero wine with more success among the most demanding palates than almost any other wine, as shown by the recent Gold Medal at the Concours Mondialle in Brussels.
It’s a wine that has been made with 100% Tempranillo grapes, which have slowly reached optimum ripeness as a consequence of the special metereological conditions of the vintage, then been subject to careful selection, processing and ageing at the new Protos facilities.
As a novelty, it’s hitting the market in two new formats. Apart from its traditional 0.75 and 0.375 litre bottle sizes, the Crianza 2008 will also be available in 1.5 litre Magnum format (very sought-out by consumers, but not produced since the 2006 vintage because of quality requirements) and the new 0.5 litre presentation, never before marketed by Protos, but ideal for sharing in couples at a more accesible price.
The Crianza 2008 from PROTOS is distinguished by its intense cherry-red color with marroon ribbons and purple touches, which indicate youth. It is a clean and bright wine. Fine to the nose, it exhudes aromas of ripe fruits perfectly blended with woody notes gained from the cask, which also contributes aromas of sweet spices and gentle toasted hints.
On the palate, it is a a tasty, rich and well balanced wine that leaves a lingering toasted memory.
