Details

This classic Spanish red wine is a single varietal Tempranillo wine made from estate-owned vineyards, 30% of which are over 50 years old, while the rest are 20 to 40 years of age.

The harvest of Tinto Figuero 12 Meses, produced by Bodegas y Viñedos García Figuero, was carried out in little boxes to avoid fruit bruises.

Once in the cellar, the grapes were put into stainless steel tanks and cold-soaked for over a period of two days.

During the process of alcoholic fermentation, perodic punch-overs and pump-downs were performed to maximize contact between the wine and the solid skin cap.

Then Tinto Figuero 12 Meses 2016 was transferred into 60% French and 40% American oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months. Once bottled, this Crianza red wine aged for another 24 months.

Properly stored, this red wine from Ribera del Duero will have a lifespan of 10-12 years.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Tinto Figuero 12 Meses has a clean, very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This Crianza red wine has a strong, but not overpowering character. Notes of ripe strawberries, blackberries, balsam, liquorice and cocoa. Subtle mineral undertones, mingled with dim toasted notions. A nicely balanced Tempranillo.

Palate

Savoury and gentle, this red wine Bodegas García Figuero has a velvety texture, noble tannins and good acidity. Well-balanced and quite focused, with a long, fruity finish. This red wine from Ribera del Duero is also quite young, and it has plenty of room for improvement.

Our personal opinion

The excellently priced Tinto Figuero 12 Meses 2016 is complex and elegant. A very interesting Ribera.
