Characteristics of Barco del Corneta Prapetisco

Barco del Corneta Prapetisco is a red wine produced at the winery Barco del Corneta in La Seca, V.T. Castilla y León.


In 2008, Beatriz Herranz returns to La Seca, Valladolid, to start her new project at the family vineyards and recover the essence of Verdejo.

She cultivates all her vines following the standards of organic agriculture, respecting the variety, the soils and the climate. These vineyards are located in the natural site Paraje de Cantarranas, La Seca. Its soils are sandy, with a lot of boulders, and they are clayey and limestone-based in deeper strata. Climate is continental, with cold and dry winters.

Barco del Corneta Prapetisco is part of the recovery project that Beatriz is carrying out alongside local wine growers with the local varieties of the area. Prapetisco is born from a vineyard owned by Juan García and which was recovered in 2014. This vineyard has 80-year-old vines, they grow on soils comprised by granite and quartz, and they are located in the Arribes del Duero Natural Park (Zamora) at 670 metres of altitude.

Grapes are manually harvested and placed in 15 kg boxes. The whole grapes, without destemming, go through a light extraction and are fermented in open deposits with a capacity of 1000 litres. Once they are pressed, they are left in 225, 400 and 600 litre barrels for a whole year.

Tasting notes Barco del Corneta Prapetisco

Barco del Corneta Prapetisco 2014 is an expressive, structured and elegant wine. In this vintage, the smoky notes are present from the outset, but do not succeed in masking a more subtle fruitiness. A pleasant, lingering wine.
