Characteristics of Tinto Figuero 12

Tinto Figuero 12 Meses is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero, produced by García Figuero winery and vineyards. This winery is located in burgalesa de la Horra (Castilla Leon)

Tinto Figuero 12 Meses is a varietal Tempranillo. The grapes come from old vines, 80% of them are between 20 and 40 years old and 20% are from vines 50 years old.

The harvest of 2011 was conditioned by the weather. The winter was harsh in spring with a hot summer which advanced the ripening of the grapes.

Developing Tinto Figuero 12 Meses starts with a manual harvest in baskets of 12kg. Once in the winery, the deposits are barrelled by gravity. Subsequently, a cold maceration takes place for 2 days at 12°C and the grapes are allowed to ferment spontaneously with 2 movements per day, at the end of fermentation a 'délestage" technique is used to extract more grape colour.

Finally, the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels (85%) and French (15%) oak barrels.

Before bottling, it is clarified with egg white and once in bottle it is aged for another 2 years.

Tasting notes Tinto Figuero 12

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
Sight Cherry red. Intense, deep and bright. Nose Intense fruit aromas. Very sweet. Notes of liquorice and chocolate. Taste Light entry. Velvety round tannins. Long finish.
2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
Sight Dark cherry colour with garnet trims. Clean, bright and with high robe. Dense tear. Nose Its intensity and complexity characterize this wine from Ribera del Duero. The notes of ripe red fruits appear along with the nuances provided by the oak: toasted, spicy and creamy. All these aromas form a very subtle and elegant wine.
Taste Very tasty and ample Crianza wine. Powerful and at the same time gentle mid palate, with notes of fruit and well integrated wood nuances. Ripe and round tannins. Balanced acidity that provides this wine with a good freshness. Lingering finish.
Sight Intense cherry red with garnet rim. Clean, bright, high layer. Dense tear. Nose Intense and complex nose. Ripe red fruit with notes of licorice with oak form a very subtle and well integrated.
Taste Tasty and well balanced. A wine with good structure and nice and powerful run. Rounded tannins and elegant. Fresh and lively wine.
Sight Pillorying intense red garnets with rivets. Clean, bright and well presented. Layer high. Dense tear. Nose Intense and complex nose. Red fruit with notes of liquorice together with oak, set up a subtle olfactory and very well integrated. Highlights the nuances of American oak that a good overlap away from the primary aromas of the wine, go with it in perfect harmony. Taste Sabroso balanced. Structured with a step-by-mouth friendly and powerful. Moderate acidity giving the wine freshness and liveliness. Round and elegant tannins.
