Figuero Tinus 2010 is the flagship wine of the Bodegas y Viñedos García Figuero winery.
This exceptional red wine is produced from over 70-year-old, high-end Tempranillo vines coming from a single estate.
Located in one of the best terroirs of Ribera del Duero, the plants produce grapes of a truly exceptional qualtiy.
Harvesting and vinification of this wine were extremely meticulous.
Gathered by hand, exactingly selected and brought to the cellar, the grapes were then fermented in 500-litre oak vats.
After that, malolactic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels. Finally, the wine was aged for 24 months in those same barrels.
A scarce wine, with a production of only 2,500 bottles, Figuero Tinus 2010 was aged for a further 12 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.
Drink now to 2025+.
Very bright, dense, dark, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
Spellbinding, ever-evolving notions of red berries, liquorice, tobacco, resin, balsam, menthol, lavender, dew, violets, graphite, charcoal, cedar and tobacco.
Dense, unctuous and powerful. A giant in the making. Mighty acidity, bold tannins and a deep sense of authenticity and terroir. Wondeful balance and extremely long, complex finish.
