Tasting notes for Vino Protos Gran Reserva 2012:
Cherry color with garnet edging and glycerine tear.
Aromas of black fruit (plums, blackberries), shady woods, fine hides, toasted woods, spices (black pepper, cloves) and touches of withered flowers appear first.
It has an excellent acidity, it is a wine with a body and at the same time easy to drink, with a good presence of the fruit despite its long aging. Long journey and final sensations that invite you to drink.
Optimum service temperature: 16° C.
