Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is the second time I tasted the 2016 Prapetisco, the one red produced at the winery with grapes (mainly Juan García) from the zone of Fermoselle in Arribes del Duero. I still find plenty of rusticity here, which I suspect is inherent to the variety, with earthy sensations intermixed with some floral notes and a medium-bodied palate with dusty tannins, in line with what I tasted last time. 1,950 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2018 and seems to evolve slowly.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels. Aged for 12 months in old French oak barrels.
Estimated transit time: 3-4 working days.
