Founded in 2001 in La Horra, 19 kilometers from Aranda de Duero, Viñedos y Bodegas García Figuero is a family-owned winery with a prime growing location on the banks of the Duero River. The state-of-the-art winery practices gravity flow, automatic topping and controlled fermentation designed to create high quality wines with great color, bouquet and taste year after year. Founders José Maria García and his wife Milagros Figuero come from a proud heritage of vine growers, and farm over 110 acres with the skills handed down from their ancestors. The vines that produce the prestigious Tinto Figuero wines are up to 60 years in age, and the family is unwavering in their mastery of the region’s most noble variety: Tempranillo. The barrels of which there are 1000 are made from the best American and French oak, toasted by renowned master coopers and renewed every three years. These barrels are instrumental in endowing Tinto Figuero wines with their unmistakable bouquet.
An intense cherry-red color. It is bright, clean and extremely well-presented. A complex and intense bouquet, with a predominance of red berries (redcurrant and blueberry) and hints of strawberry yogurt and candy. It is well-integrated with sweet touches of toffee, caramel, cigar box, violets and spices. The palate is powerful, with elegant tannins and its “personality” coming from the terroir. Fine oak notes reappear at the start of a long finish.
