Details

Produced in Ribera del Duero, Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas is a remarkable Tempranillo made from over 60-year-old grapevines located in some of the best terroirs of the region.

The estate-owned vineyards of Bodegas y Viñedos García Figuero are planted over 800 metres above sea level. They grow on soils composed of sand and clay.

Harvested in late September and brought to the cellar in little boxes, the grapes were meticulously vinified.

First, this Spanish red wine was spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks, after which it was macerated for 14 days. Then it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels.

Clarified with egg whites, Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas 2016 was further aged for 12 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Drink this red wine from Ribera del Duero until 2030.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas has a very bright, clean, dense, high cherry-coloured robe with a crimson rim.

Nose

Remarkably complex and deep, this old-vines Tempranillo offers some intense notes of red and black fruit, along with notions of spices, graphite, liquorice, cocoa, bitter chocolate and toast. Deep mineral undertones slowly appear, mingled with some fresh earthy notions.

Palate

A meaty and silky red wine by Bodegas y Viñedos García Figuero. Nice entrance onto the palate, with substantial volume and complexity. Velvety tannins, well-balanced acidity and long finish with remembrances of mulberries, balsam, spices and subtle wooden notes.

Our personal opinion

The classy Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas 2016 is an delightful wine from Ribera del Duero which an enormous potential for improvement.

    Go for it! It is a wonderfully honest and delicious wine.

  2. vinas viejas review by Proms on 6/11/2018
    Value

    Dense and deep at first, even imposing. After a while, however, it becomes a pure delight.

  3. old vines review by JJ on 11/12/2017
    Value

    A full-blodied Ribera, still young but already very promising. Smooth tannins and a great nobility of character.
