    Winemaker Notes

    Tinto Figuero's 12 Month Crianza is dark red in color with blue highlights. The initial aromas are fully-ripened blackberry and plum with sweet touches of oak, chocolate, cacao and a touch of balsamic, eucalyptus and liquorice at the end. The palate is balanced and full bodied, with sweet, round tannins. The finish is long and silky with good, balanced acidity.

    Tinto Figuero, Ribera del Duero, Spain
    Jose Maria Garcia and Milagros Figuero are a vine-growing couple who have devoted their entire lives to looking after their "majuelos," or young vines. They are proud heirs to a culture that has been handed down through several generations. Each day is filled with care of more than 45 hectares of vines, over half of which were carefully and meticulously farmed by their ancestors, some of the vines still producing grapes today date back to the 1930s.

    After many years of concentrating exclusively on the cultivating their vines with the aim of producing "top flight" grapes, the couple decided to embark on a project that they knew would take a great deal of tenacity and expertise - to make their own wines.

    The wines of Garcia Figuero are all 100% Tempranillo - Spain's "signature" red grape, the backbone of the wines from the Ribera del Duero and the only grape variety planted on the Estate. Twenty five hectares of Garcia Figuero's vineyards feature Tempranillo vines older than 60 years.

    In 2001, with the aid of their three children - Carlos, Henar and Antonio - the actual winery became a reality. La Horra, the place that had witnessed the farm's growth over the centuries at one of the most prestigious locations along the banks of the Duero River, was chosen. Over 1,000 barrels lie in the aging room.

    Ribera del Duero

    View all wine

    Ribera del Duero is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

    Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spices, dark fruit and smoky flavors of Ribera del Duero wines pair well with roast meats, BBQ and anything off the grill.

    Tempranillo

    Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

    In the Glass

    Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

    Perfect Pairings

    Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

    Sommelier Secret

    The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
