Characteristics of Tinto Figuero 4

Figuero Tinto is a young red wine from the Ribera del Duero produced by the García Figuero winery and vineyards.

This winery is located in La Horra, close to Aranda del Duero (Burgos), the capital of the region of Ribera del Duero. The vineyards are located at 800m above sea level. Its climate is Mediterranean with continental influence, with long, cold winters and short, hot summers. The climate is characterised by low rainfall and a large amount of sunshine (about 2400 hours of sunshine per year).

The altitude enhances the contrast in temperature, summer reaches temperatures of up to 40 ° C, and winters may reach -16º C. These temperatures help a perfect ripening of the grapes. Tinto Figuero is made with 100% Tempranillo, with an average age of between 15 and 20 years. The harvest is done manually in baskets of 12 kilos. Subsequently a cold maceration occurs for 2 to 3 days at 12 ° C. Alcoholic fermentation occurs spontaneously at a maximum temperature of 28 ° C, with 2 movements per day and "1 rack and return" at the end of fermentation. After fermentation, maceration occurs for 15 days.

The wine is made in new oak barrels (50%) and 1 year old: 75% American, 25% French.

Finally it is clarified with egg white, is bottled and is then aged in the bottle before marketing.

Tasting notes Tinto Figuero 4

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.
Sight Cardinal cherry trim with good intensity. Clean, bright and with good presence. Nose Complex and pervasive, very fruity at first with aromas of red and black fruits. Subtle mineral notes. Taste Elegant, smooth and fresh. Very good balance with soft tannins. Red fruit aftertaste. Persistent and pleasant.
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.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
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.
Sight Intense maroon colour with scarlet-purple reflections. Clean and bright. Dense and creamy tears. Nose At first nosing, the toasted and spicy aromas provided during its short ageing in wood are released. When swirling the glass, ripe red and black fruit are noticed along with some balsamic touches. Taste Very nice attack and a warm, powerful and light mid palate. Tasty and velvety smooth.
