First, the Tempranillo grapes were manually harvested in little boxes to avoid fruit bruising.
Once in the cellar, the grapes were cold-soaked for 2 to 3 days and then spontaneously fermented.
Then this Spanish red wine was racked prior to malolactic fermentation.
Finally, Tinto Figuero 4 Meses 2018 Mágnum (1.5 litre bottle) was aged for 4 months in 50% new and 50% 2nd year American oak (75%) and French oak barrels (25%).
Drink this Tempranillo through 2025.
The wine Tinto Figuero 4 Meses has a bright, clean, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a crimson rim.
This varietal Magnum wine from Ribera del Duero is fresh and fruity. Loads of red fruit, blackberries, blueberries and mulberries. Great balance between fruit and oak. On the background, subtle mineral notions and some balsamic remembrances.
Fresh and focused. This Tempranillo by Bodegas García Figuero has some mild tannins and a good acidity. Remembrances of red fruit, menthol and underbrush. Long, pleasant finish.
